no one ever told me
today would be the day
you left this luscious earth
with not a word to say

i am torn, broken, hurt
but you will never leave my mind
i am damaged, shattered, riven
but we still stay intertwined

a thousand tears won’t bring you back
yet i cry more everyday
a thousand words won’t bring you back
yet i pray in every way

my dreams are filled with you
your sweet smile and precious face
every night you come to see me
sharing with me your grace

life shall go on
the world will not end
but you will stay in my heart
as my very best friend

My five-year-old cousin died in 2012, and she was my best friend. I wanted to write something dedicated to her, but also a piece that others can relate to.
