Loss Of A Friend

Death. A word that always will strike fear.
The thought of losing ones whom we hold so dear.
How to move on when the one we love is gone forever
Will I ever get over this loss? Never, never.
Your laugh, your smile, your personality that shone so bright.
How was all of this taken away in just one night.
The pain, the suffering, the endless tears.
How can our friendship be over after all of these years.
After the loss of your mother, you didn't know how to cope.
Turning to pills, putting you on a downward slope.
If someone could have filled the empty space in your heart,
You'd still be here with us, just like you were from the very start.
I wanted to reach out to you that tragic night.
I had a gut feeling that something just wasn't right.
You were on my mind and I couldn't understand why.
I live with the regret every day, which is another reason I cry.
Two days later, I took a trip to Brooklyn to see you, my friend.
I kept saying how I couldn't believe this was the end.
The end of the memories, the laughs and the smiles.
I know I won't be seeing them again for a while.
It's been a long road, now that it's been a year.
I still find it hard sometimes to hold back a tear.
I have become strong and accepted your fate.
I love you, miss you and forgive you, even though this may be late.
Death. A word that will always strike fear.
But not any longer, I will shed no tear.
