"And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling
And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel my pain
Just smile back"-Eminem


I still remember the day we said goodbye,
When I went away and just wanted to cry
I will remember that look in your eye,
How it seemed to smile even if you didn’t try
I remember, I still remember.
I still remember driving away from you,
Feeling so sad I didn’t know what to do
I will remember the things I said to you,
And still regret all of the things I wanted to
And I remember, I still remember.
I still remember the look on your face,
When I went away to go back to my place
I will remember leaving you there
How on that day life didn’t seem fair
Because I remember, I still remember
I still remember the day we rode that van
On our way to church, but more than we knew then
I will remember the way we laughed together
How we would be friends no matter what weather
Because I remember, I will always remember.


The author's comments:
This is the first poem I ever wrote. This is about the day I had to say goodbye to a friend of mine. It was a very difficult time for me, because we got really close during the week we spent with each other, (at a Civil Air Patrol Summer Encampment) and I will admit that I cried myself to sleep that night, knowing that I might never see her again. We are still friends, and communicate through email and by phone (she doesn't have a Facebook).

Thanks.  That's what this was, really.  Raw emotions exploding out and bleeding through the walls that held them for too long.  But what I don't get is why this one is more popular than The Truth About Forever Goodbyes.  That one is way better.

I'm guessing you got a deer?  Congratulations.  All I got this weekend was a frozen backside, and a filthy orange vest. :P
