I miss you

It's been a while since you've gone, and not a day goes by that I don't miss you.
I don't want to believe you've left, I don't want to believe it's true.
These tears fall from my eyes, every time I hear that certain song.
I don't know what else to do, I just have to be strong.

I know you're in a safer place, somewhere so far away from me.
I know that you're looking down, you're in a place I cannot see.
I don't want to believe you're gone, but you are permanently in my heart.
There is where you'll remain, therefore from this world- you will never part.

You were kind to me, from the very start.
And the smile you possessed, was a beautiful piece of art.
I still fight the pain, wanting the hurt to end.
It still isn't easy, to say I lost a friend.

I try to convince myself, you're still around.
Until that painful truth, shoots me to the ground.
I don't want it to be true, because I miss you so.
I still don't understand, did you really have to go?

I don't want to believe, you aren't really there.
I don't want to hurt, because of course I still care.
Words cannot express, the heaviness I feel.
Nor can they take away, that your absence is real.

So is it okay, if these tears still fall?
As the one song, brings up a memory- painful to recall.
You're the sunshine in the day, that moonlight shining at night.
You are the thought in the back of my mind, to make that wrong- a right.

You're that gentle brush of wind, pushing me to move on.
That thought in my mind, saying you're not really gone.
You're that shadow on my wall, seeing me off the sleep.
You are that memory, I will forever keep.

And so I sit alone, in the quiet of the night.
Thinking to myself, something isn't right.
Here in my own silence, not knowing what to do.
I can't help but think, Ryan- I miss you.
