Wishing you were here again,
So I could see your smile.
Wishing you were here again,
So we might walk another mile.

Sometimes I dream, of us together,
Running down the street.
A screaming and a laughing,
I see you chasing after me.

Wishing you were here again,
So I could see your smile
Wishing you were here again,
So we might walk another mile.

Often times I think of you,
During my sleepless nights.
Tossing and a turning,
Rekindling forgotten frights.

Wishing you were here again,
So I could see your smile.
Wishing you were here again,
So we might walk another mile.

But now that you have left us,
Going to another place.
Leaving all your love behind,
With us, you leave your grace.

Wishing you were here again,
So I could see your smile.
Wishing you were here again,
So we might walk another mile.

Ok, so those of you whom have read my work, this is another poem about Ian. For those of you who haven't, Ian was my best friend. We lived across the street from each other from the time we were babies, until we were about 10 yrs old. He moved across town and just didn't seem to fit in right. Ian became really depressed and committed suicide on March 18th 2007. I would really appreciate any kind of constructive critism you all have, and if you new Ian, or have lost anyone else in such a way, I feel your pain. It was hard on us all, and for some of us, it still is.

I lost a friend to a drug overdose in 2009 and this poem makes me think of his sister who is my best friend.

She misses him every single day

Great job, wonderful poem

Thank you so much.  It has been a while since I lost him, but it still hurts sometimes.  I totally agree with you about learning how to deal with loosing the people who are close to you.  Again, thank you.

This was an amazing peice of writing. And the background you provided for it only made the poem stronger. I'm sure you're tiered of hearing this but I'm so sorry for your loss. But through death, I think we really discover who we are and grow as people. Some people dont know how to deal with the overwhelming stress of loosing someone close...but this poem shows that you are wise enough and strong enough to honor Ian's memory and push forward. Ink is forever and this poem, as well as his memory, is in ink. Again, beautiful writing..I can't get enough of your stuff!

Thank you, but I have to tell you, it was about two and a half years after Ian commited suicide before I could put anything onto paper.  I hadn't thought about him for a while and there were kids outside and something just reminded me of how he and I used to play, and inspiration struck me.  It took me about 15 minutes to write "My Friend Ian," and that was the first of my poems.  Just wait, I know how hard it is to go through something like this, but one day you will be able to really come to terms with what happened and those feelings.

Thank you, I was going through a rough patch when I wrote this, I started this around the time of Ian's birthday and we were singing "Wishing You Were Some How Here Again" from Phantom of the Opera in choir and some how I blended them together.  This piece is probably one of my favorites because of that. 

I will definately look at your work too.
