if this town is just an apple, then let me take a bite- michael jackson"human nature"

I watched the shadow from a far
Watching the healing of the scar
I watched you suffer from pain and burn
A hole was dug in return

It seems like yesterday you awoke breathless
Always talked about being restless
Now you lie still and free of pain
My tears pour down like a sky full of rain

You taught me things I could never learn on my own
How if you don’t live life right your legend will die when you go
You taught me life is a lesson full of mistakes
Even more important you taught me never to let someone see me break

Now that you’re gone I see life differently
I now know everyone isn’t a friend but an enemy
Some people will be there when you need them but some won’t
I should have love for everyone but I really don’t

It takes two to become best friends
I promised you I would be there until the end
I kept my promise; I was there until your last breath
I wept softly as I watched you slept.

Best part is not knowing some may say
I glad I got to see your smile everyday
I miss your laughter and your gentle touch
I guess for you life was too much

I hope you’re resting because you were always tired
You meet up with everyone else is what I desired
I hope you’re okay and you still smile
Just remember we will see you in a while<3

I lost my cousin to a battle of lupus,pneumonia, and sepsis. She was 18 and a hard fighter, but God just decided he wanted his angel back.
