Taken Away This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   People tell you it's okay to cry

When someone you know is going to die

But what if you are taken by surprise

And the worst of your fears are now realized

If I could change the world

One day

Or one year

I'd put you back next to me, right here

I'd shoot away every "ed"

That is put in a sentence with your name (the past tense).

I'm frustrated. There is nowhere to put the blame

I'll always have your memories; that's good I guess,

But I'll really miss you, Nathan Michael Lucas

1979-1996
