Loss of a Friend Poem

This poem is about a great person who got taken from us on Feb. 19 of 2006. Cameron Lund was the type of person that could make anyone laugh. He never had a frown on his face. You are missed big time Cam.
We Love You

Only A Memory

Your smile, your laughter
-Only a memory.
Your voice, your personality
-Only a memory.

Sometimes people mention your name.
Some just keep quiet.
But no matter what is or isn't said.
You're always on someone's mind.

two years have gone by,
But it seems like only yesterday,
You were by your family's side.

We can only think of who you'd be,
To us, you only remain a memory.

It's been a while since you've been gone.
For your friends and family, things just aren't the same.
It still doesn't seem real.
Who holds the blame?

If love could have saved you,
You'd still be here today.
The love we hold for you,
Will never change.

As you lay in a still rest,
God broke our hearts to prove he took the best.
Everything you did, everything you were.
It's only a memory.

This poem really touched me.. on 2-13-09 my gamma died. My family went back to our home State for her funeral, we stayed there for a week. One week later, 7 hours after we got home, my best friend died in a car accident, her friend that was in the car walked away fine. A few months later my friends dad died. I'm 13 years young been to my first 3 funerals in the last 7 months. Life is sad.. I miss them so much
