I never want to see you again
It breaks my heart
I hope you know that
But I want to remember you
Just as you were
Spinning around in the Spider with me
Laughing while eating our
Blue cotton candy

I don’t want to picture you
Thin, on the streets
Shooting up crystal meth
With your cruel boyfriend
Child taken away
Will you meet her again?
She thought I was you
With my hair the same length
When she asked for me
‘Mama?’
I thought I would cry

Why’d you accept
That fateful first hit?
Did you know what it’d cost you?
I can’t think you did
But what does it matter
When you’re still
An addict
A full-time
Never-ending
Til death do you part
Addict

My cousin is a meth addict, and I miss her so much. I still don't know why she did what she did, but I'll always love her.

This was so sad! I got chills.

I really liked this part

"But I want to remember you

The emotion behind this is really shown, and I'm so sorry about your cousin. Everything happens for a reason and there's always chance for a miracle♥
