Death of a Friend Poem

this is for my friend that died in a car crash. I love you, Olivia.

Birthday At The Grave

© Sarah
I know I havenít visited you
Since the day you were buried
And I just want to say Iím sorry.
But I just still canít believe youíre gone,
And itís getting more real each day.
The crash seems like yesterday.
Although I know it's been quiet some time.
Itís almost your birthday.
Donít worry, I havenít forgotten.
I already got you a gift but
itís just something small.
Iím going to visit you and unwrap it by your side.
Then scrap up some dirt, and place it in the earth.
Next to it Iíll place a picture,
Of us and the team at the pool.
And when you see them,
I hope you know that I still miss you.
And not a single day goes by that I donít wish you were here.
