That Girl

She's been gone for a while now
Thought she's be here again
Saw her in my head
No
Never again
Why is she gone from here?
Why did I never hear why?
Why did you leave?

How can you mend from a wound never opened?
Just a certainty shattered, one word I heard

Saw your name on my t-shirt
The day that you signed it
The joy in your eyes
No
Never again
You were the strongest one
How could you ever let go?
Did you let go?

How can you mend from a wound never opened?
Just a certainty shattered, one word I heard
I should be fine, but I'm screaming inside from the fear
Can you tell me you're here?

One run, one summer I knew you enough to know
All of the joy and the life that you loved
Just a few years, and I'll be the age you were that day
The day that you died
Sweet sixteen, your birthday
Should have been happy
Never so wrong


The author's comments:
Last summer, I went to my usual camp where I met a new girl named Helene, who became one of my closest friends there. She had a love for life that few other people had, which is one of the most tragic things about the fact that she died in the fall of 08 from an aneurysm on her 16th birthday. RIP Helene, and I'm dedicating this to anyone whose ever lost a friend.
