We all sit together and grieve
For the life of a boy who decided to leave.

Today the school is dressed in black,
In rememberance of this boy who won't be back.

The tunnel must have been dark and long.
He must have been unable to find the light because now he is gone.

The amount of people affected show the friends he had.
With so many people here for him could it really have been that bad?

Beautiful mind, and beautiful smile.
If only we could have sat and talked for a while.

I would have helped you through whatever it was.
I would have helped you to see all of the love,

that surrounded you, that we have for you.
If you cried for help, nobody knew.

The shock and surprise echo in the halls
There is a thick silince inside these classroom walls.

I hope you are happy in your new home.
And that the pain that claimed your life is now gone.

We will all be together when one by one we take our turns to leave.
Until then you are lovingly remembered and alive in all our memories.

This was written about a boy at my school who hung himself. His brother cut him from the tree
