"Ton infinity and beyond." Buzz Lightyear, Toy Story

He ended his life on Mother's Day
over a little dispute, some say.
A stranger to some,
a brother to others
but most of all,
a son to his mother.

The moment I learned his end had come
everything began to come undone.
The whole school mourned the loss of a dear friend.
We didn't know how to begin again.

Our teacher, his coach, said a few words,
that helped calm the students who couldn't be reassured
“No matter the troubles you keep inside,
you always have people to stand by your side.”

Although we have lost a very dear friend,
We can always remember a time spent with him.

When troubles set in
and times get hard
remember to try to let down your guard.
When you let someone else see how you feel
that is when you can truly heal.

I only wish he could have known
He was never truly alone.
All he had to do was reach out for help
and someone could have turned this whole thing about.

And as we have found
It's hard to let go,
It's hard to give in,
but we have to move on now
and try to begin again.
