Death of a Friend Poem

Dedicated to my best friend who was in a terrible accident almost a year ago at the age of 23 which unknown to us at the time would eventually kill him 4 weeks later. I miss him, almost more now then I did at the beginning. He was the best friend I could have ever wished for and hope he's happy now and at rest. Laura xx

1 Year On

© Laura
The way I miss you is different now, I don't think about forever I just don't know how.
I miss your face, your laugh and your smile, It seems like a lifetime, though its just been a while

Its been a year since I heard the news that Oh so terrible day.
I never thought id lose you ''I'm not going anywhere'' I'd heard you say.

But you did, your gone... there's no getting you back.
At Least I have my memories..of which I know for sure there is no lack!

I miss you so much, there's still a void in my heart.
I just wish we could have lived our lives not ever having to be apart.
I've given up wishing you'd come back to fill this hole.
You put it there a year ago when your body left your soul.

I know your gone I just wish I'd known.
So that the last time I spoke with you I could have kept you on the phone.
I'd have told you how much I loved you and how forever I'd know your smile.
And how I didn't think I could live without you.. not even for a while.

Although your gone and out of sight your definitely not out of mind.
You've flown away and not through choice you left us all behind.

I hope you know we still think of you and how much you meant to us.
And how you made me feel the way that now your gone...no-one else does.

It's been a year and it's safe to say, I still think about you everyday, I might not hope or even pray I just love and miss you in my own special way ...
(My best friend forever you will always stay.)
