-"Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one is listening. Love like you've never been hurt and live like it's heaven on earth" - Mark Twain

A smile on your face,
A laugh that light up the world.
It was the last of several we’ve seen,
It was the last of several we’ve heard.
Bright, fun, cheerful,
No one ever saw it coming.
It wasn’t a single moment,
It wasn’t a single person.
It wasn’t a single event,
It wasn’t a single day.
Something set you off,
Something told you to do it.
It was the day no one expected,
And everyone dreaded.
It was your last day around us,
And no one wanted it to happen like this.
Several moments,
Several people,
Several events,
Several days.
No one knew what was coming,
The world is hell on earth,
We wish you were still here.
We all miss you,
We all wish you hadn’t done it.
Stay with us,

Sunday, October 10th, 2010, my friend's younger sister committed suicide. We all wish it hadn't happened, and none of us even expected. We will all miss her. Rest In Peace Josie.
