Favorite Quote:
"My books are water; those of the great geniuses is wine. Everybody drinks water." -Mark Twain


When you can’t let go
When she is now
A memory
But not just a memory
She is so much more
She is every time you got detention
For talking about your last sleepover
She is every time you stayed up all night
Scared of the monsters under the bed
Because of the scary movie you watched with her
She is the smell of the burnt casserole her mother served
At a table you will never sit at with her again
She is her smile
She is her love
She isn’t gone
Unless you make her go
She will always be there
Cheering you on
Because now it’s up to you
To live the life
She left behind
