Favorite Quote:
“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe


The face is so cold,
who once used to be bold.
It's hard to see him lying there,
who is lying there looking so bare.
His face is so pale,
even white covers his nails.
He looks so calm,
while he is holding out his palm.

I sit and stare,
looking back at his last glare.
I miss him so much,
I just want to punch.
It hurts me to see,
It hurts me to be.

I wish I could of said goodbye,
or even the last hi!
I missed out on that,
now I only have his hat.
I wear his hat everyday,
and all I can say,
is that I miss you dearly.
It has to show so clearly,
of how much i love thee.


The author's comments:
I wrote this after I went to the funeral of my uncle. He always wore the same hat everyday and my aunt that day was wearing his hat while she was sobbing. I wrote this for her and once I gave it to her she gave me a big hug and told me that everything is going to be alright now.
