Death of a Friend Poem

This poem was written for my best friend when he died on June 12,2009. He was shot and fatally wounded. I wrote this poem in honor of him.

I Miss You

© Maria Martinez
If I had knew then, what I know now
I would've spent more time with you
Things go by so fast
and I wish I could back and change the past.

Even with the days that have gone by
I think of you still, and often cry.
People say time makes the hurt go away
But I think of you, each and every day.

Sure I miss all the things we used to do
My best friend for life you will always be.
Every night and day about you I pray.
To see you smile at me again someday

Now the place you're going, I may not get to go
But I'll keep on trying, and I wanted you to know
Now there's one more thing, I wish I could do
I wish I could tell you how much I miss you.
