When I think of you I feel lonely
This urge of sadness overcomes me
Like a wave grabbing me by the neck
And holding me underwater
But I don't cry because I want to seem strong
You're so humble yet so loud and you’ve
Now opened up my eyes
And I wish you weren't as lonely as you are
I wish it was my loneliness instead of yours
Even after what has happened to you
I just want you to be happy
You have been through enough even
Though it's partly your fault
I'm not mad and I still
want you to be the happy one
I’ve overheard the whispers and
It makes me feel worthless for you
I wonder what our family would be like
If this hadn’t happened to you 
I love you and always will,
Even if some people don’t
Hope I can see you sometime soon

This piece is about someone very special to me that I don't get to see very much anymore.
