i woke to find your loving face,
smiling over me,
filled with grace.

but just as soon as i said hello,
you went away,
to where i dont know.

i sat straight up,
and looked around,
but everywhere i looked,
there was no one to be found.

i took out your picture,
and closed my eyes,
there you were again,
quiet and suprised.

i asked you why you werent still here,
you said dont worry,
"I'm spending some time with Jesus this year."

i was completing a test to get into a specialized high school when this poem just came to me; most likely inspired by my Grandpa and Uncle. R.I.P. <3

love is blind
only the shadow knows
words said in the heat of anger are never from the heart

awsome =]
