Well, I'm gonna get out of bed every morning...breathe in and out all day long. Then, after a while I won't have to remind myself to get out of bed every morning and breath in and out....and, then after a while, I won't have to think about how great and perfect I had it once. -Sleepless in Seattle

It should't have ended that way
You shouldn't have had to go
You left me with so many questions
Whose answers i'll never know
Till i make it to Heaven
And we are once again one
Would our love have lasted through the years?
Would have always came home?
Would have caught my tears before they fall?
Would you have stayed through it all?
Would you have helped me raise our daughter
Or would you have simply let go?
Would you be able to explain to her
All the questions whose answers i don't know
Could you make her understand this life is temporary
And i'm counting the moments till i'm back with you.

The author's comments:
Four years ago i had a very close friend who met met this guy and they were very close, and she had just found out she was pregnant,and since his family was on vacation, she decided to wait till they go home to tell him, since she figured finding out over the phone takes meaning out of it. The day he was suppose to be home his step-brother calls her and tells her, the guy and his father had been in a car wreck and neither of them made it out alive. She knew how much i loved writing, and asked me to write a poem to hang over her mantle under his and her prom pictures, so that is were the poem came from (:
