Favorite Quote:
"Time heals griefs and quarrels, for we change and are no longer the same persons."

It’s on days like this
When I look up to the sky
All dark and grey,
With one small beam of light,
I know it must be you.
Letting us know you will always be here.
Maybe not as a human
But as our guardian angel.
Helping us through these days.
Making them a little more bearable.
Showing us the better side of each day.
Then though hard days that come up
You will still be her to help
In the best way that you can.
While you were still here, you never let us cry.
Now that you are gone,
We cry all day long.
Missing all the times that we’ve shared.
Not knowing what else we could do.
You were the only person there to talk to.
Now there is no one.
When we look up to the sky,
All dark and grey,
With only one small beam of light.
We know its you looking down upon us.
Living your teenage life next to our heavenly father.
Helping us find the right way to go.
Still being here with us always.
In our minds and hearts forever.
You are home now,
Back to where you belong.

This poem is about my best friend who had past in a very young age. I wrote this on the two year anniversary of his death.
