Goodbye Allen

Published: February 2009

Everyday I stare at your picture,
the vivid look on your smiling face,
tears fall on that picture,
as I sit there, tears falling on my tear stained cheeks.

you died at such a young age,
why did it have to happen to you,
you were my best friend, my brother,
and I never get to see you again.

it was a horrible accident,
that car taking you away from me,
that feeling in my heart knowing,
just knowing that you were drifting away from me.

When I heard you died,
my heart broke in two,
I couldn't breathe,
my body was shutting down.

That day I saw you,
your body was cold, your face white,
as white as a ghost.
I held back on the tears, till the ceremony began.

When I went to that podium with your fiancée,
the tears were in her eyes as I held her hand,
tears falling fast on my cheeks,
faster than a waterfall in the forests.

I sat down when she was done,
I couldn't say anything,
I buried my face in my hands and sobbed,
the last words in my heart said, "goodbye Allen"

Omg this really really touched me... I kind of know how you feel my cousin who has lived with me for years had died from a car crash while he was texting me because as a regular student who does not like staying in school I had asked me to come pick me up and he was texting me why? And he got hit I saw his phone later on that day when we all went 2 visit him an there was my message and him asking why before he sent it off to me and the glass on his iphone was broken
Till this day I feel as if I took away his life and I am in therapy because I have tried to kill myself several times

Listen take your brother picture go into your room hug his picture kiss it as if you wear kissing him for the last time and say not goodbye but I love you and I'll see you later and see how good you feel
