what could have been
can no longer be
what should have been
I can no longer see

it was clear
and clear as day
then you left
and went far away

where did you go
and why aren’t you here
I’m just stuck here wondering
why you had to disappear

its not fair
and its not right
I guess I’ll never understand
the reasons I don’t sleep at night

The author's comments:
This poem is about my idol. His name is David and he was my uncle who passed away a few years ago. There is not a day that I don't think about him so most days are hard.
