Dear Dana

It’s been so long;
I can’t remember the last time we’ve been together.
I know you enrolled for a reason,
And that you can’t be deported forever.
I’ve missed you so much,
Tears pour against my dry pale cheeks;
Every time I think of your touch.

Together since before birth,
This has been the hardest thing for me.
I know I’ve supported you’re irrational decision,
But why did you have to leave D?

Do you know I pray every day?
Wishing it was me out there taking the bullets, not you.
I cry myself to sleep,
Hoping you feel this way too.
We were more than sisters,
We were more than twins.
You were and still are my identical best friend.

The pain in my chest,
I get when someone asks me if you’re okay.
I respond with fear,
Wishing, striving, and hoping you’re alive the next day.
You left me all alone,
How could you abandon me?

To be so selfish,
I’m dying without you, can’t you see?
You ruined everything for us,
What you did was unforgiving.
I pull my hair out every day,
Hoping you’re breathing and living.
Although I can’t believe you,
I still love you very much.
We are and forever will be one in the same.
Now please respond and stay in touch.

Love you forever and always,
Nina
