"“How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.”
-Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel


Constantly thinking,
never to be the same,
the tears fall quickly
just hearing your name.

Silence is golden
yet not anymore
silence brings thoughts
I just can't ignore.

The nights are sleepless,
dreams out of reach.
Crying in my pillow
to you I beseech.

Surrounded by family,
I still feel alone.
My heart is so empty,
this pain I must own.

I wish I could hug you
and just see your face.
But now I have memories
to stand in your place.

Gone but not forgotten,
that's what they say.
Of course that is true...
but if only you could of stayed

I wrote this poem 6 days after my child hood best friend passed away suddenly. She had survived 2 heart transplants and was in GREAT health when she was taken from us. this poem explains everything I was going through at the time and am still going through now, 3 months later.
