I was just thinking, how strange that I'll never walk those halls again
But sadly, surreally, neither will you.
I will miss you terribly, my friend.
Even more now.
Now, when I come back to visit, to share my tales,
You won't be there.
I'm numb. It just feels like a bad dream,
Like this can't really be happening
Like I could wake up for winter break,
Catch the train home from college and find you
But you won't be there.
Instead you'll be gone--
Just not here.
In every tear
On every mind and guilty thought
Every memory reel
Every tiny candle flame
Whispering through every hall and class
Every windblown flag
Waiting on paper and soundwaves for those thoughts and feelings that cannot be fathomed into coherence
For the day we meet again
For when I ask you "why?" so you can give me some smartass comment that you've had all the time in the world to perfect.
Just one moment means so much.
In one moment, you made the world temporarily stop.
I hope you see
You will be missed so much
You meant the world to everyone around you
We all cared
But now it's too late.
I hope you're happy now.
So long, my friend,
Until we meet again,
Because after all,
You were never truly gone
And though you won't be around,
You will always be with us.
