Never Forget

December 5, 2007
By Brenda Lee Martinez, Mission, TX

PLEASE DON'T LET ME FORGET; DON'T MAKE IT A THREAT,
FOR THIS TRAGEDY IS DOOMING MY FATE,
THE WORLD MOVES SLOW NOW; NOT KNOWING HOW-
HOW THIS NIGHTMARE SLOWLY CREATE?
I NEED TO KNOW THIS BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE,
BEFORE MY SADNESS SL0WLY TURNS TO HATE.

FROM TRIGGERING ALL THE LIES; I SEE AS THE WORLD DIES,
THOSE DAYS OF SADNESS SEEMED SO SLOW.
A PROMISE OF THE NIGHT; LEAVING ME SLIGHTLY TIGHT,
THEY TELL ME TO MOVE ON BUT I CAN'T LET GO,
SHE WAS MY BEST FRIEND AND IT'S HARD TO KNOW-
HOW THESE CHARACTERS OF DEATH BRING ONE SO SLOW.
