I remember

April 13, 2012
I remember
Your warm inviting smile
The shimmer in your eyes
And the glow of your dirty blond hair

I remember
Your sweet embrace
The songs you'd sing
And the music you'd play

I remember
Your soothing voice
The endless nights
And where we first met

I remember
Your e-mails you sent
The texts
And phone calls you made

I remember
Your sarcastic laughter
The fights we had
And the parties we've gone to

I remember
Your parents
The reaction of joy they had
And the dinner they made us

I remember
Your birthday
The prom you invited me to
And summer vacation

I remember
Your college days
The letters you wrote
And in Japanese

I remember
Your depression
The guilt you bore
And the way it progressed

I remember
Your silent plea
The way I was too blind to see it
And the color black

I remember
Your suicide
The way you dangled
And the bleak funeral

I remember
Your life
The way you lived
And loved

I remember
Mostly because
It's hard to forget
A person like you
