Nick G “NUGGETS” For you my friend

January 6, 2009
By Hollie Guill, South Weber, UT

You were here one Day
Then gone the next
What happened did I blink too fast
Or was I not paying enough attention to see
That you got up and walked away.

You were here one Moment
Then gone the next
Does time go by that fast
Or does everyone else simply slowdown

You were here that Second
Then gone the next
Did my cries not reach your ears in time
Was I a second to late to stop the tragic accident
That made my happiness flash before my very eyes
Then disappear the next.
I spent seconds waiting for you to call to me
But no luck instead silence fell across your lips

ALIVE ONE MOMENT
THEN GONE THE NEXT!
