For Will: Moving yet Loving

This one is for Will
The British boy who was my first best friend
The one who taught me to stand up for myself
The British boy who was my first crush
The one who taught me to let go

When first you came
I first fell in love with
Your adorable accent
The one now absent from your voice
Then I got to know you
And fell in love with you
In general
Best of all, you loved me too
Just not that way
You said I was your best friend
I practically glowed
With happiness
Then I heard from your friends
That you were moving
To Kansas
And soon you would be gone
Forever
Oh my
Please don’t
I haven’t done
Half the things I wanted to
Please don’t forget
The notes we used to pass
The seat we shared on the bus
The love between us
Please don’t leave me behind
For Kansas
I gotta admit
When I found out
When I got the news
I screamed
I cried
My soul in torture
My heart confused
I can remember
In sixth grade
When you told me
That before
Either of us died or moved
One kiss at least
I’ve waited all this time for you
But now you’re gonna be gone
Forever
I can’t believe myself
I gotta be strong
You’re leaving
I can’t change that
But I already miss you so much
That my heart feels broken
My head swimming
Kansas, you say?
So far
Gone forever
Why
Do you have to go?
Why
Do you have to leave me?
Why?
I scream
Into the rain
Into the storm
Oh my
Please don’t
I haven’t done
Half the things I wanted to
Please don’t forget
The notes we used to pass
The seat we shared on the bus
The love between us
Please don’t leave me behind
For Kansas
But now I know
You’re gonna move on
Without me
I’m gonna move on
Without you
It’s going to hurt me
So much
I don’t know if it’s going to hurt you
But please
If you forget everything
Don’t forget me
I want you to know
That I won’t forget you
How can I?
Memories flash
Us at Walker Park
With our friends Allegra,
James, and Meg
All of us having fun
Joking around
Us on the last day of school
At Holt Middle School
You chased me
Down the hallway
And tickled me
Both of us laughing
I remember us both
At Ramay
Before you switched to Haas
I remember moping around
For a week
After you left
Wondering where you’d gone
Wondering if I’d ever see you again
But I saw you once more
And almost at church that night
I cried that night
I just missed you
I was so upset
All I wanted
Was to see you
One last time
Before you left for
Kansas
I know
There will always be a part of me
That will always love you
And
Please
Don’t
Forget
Me

This one is for Will
The British boy I’m gonna miss so much
When he leaves for Kansas
The British boy who better not forget
His first best friend
