I wrote this as it was ment to be a song but then i realised it was better as a poem... I tried sending it to avenged sevenfold on there myspace...
Dear Avenged Sevenfold,
My names Hannah. Recently I have experienced the passing of a loved one in my own family and it just brought back the devastation of Jimmys passing, as he was my idol. After reading the Kerrang Magizine on your first official interview the thing which stayed with me was how much you always referred to him as your brother and I really felt for all of you, and I am very sorry for the loss of not just your drummer but your friend and brother.
You all inspired me as I was trying to write a song when trying to deal with my own loss and the feelings I had on both passings. I must really thank you all very much for this. In the End it turned into a poem and I realised that it was about how much jimmy was an amazing musician, friend and brother to you all and I thought you may like to read it. I hope you enjoy it and I thank you all very much from the bottom of my heart for being such an amazing band and people, you and your music have really helped me through my life.
Friend & Brother
"Death is at your door,
You cant hear me anymore,
I cant understand
What you say just take my hand,
Let me know you understand,
As the lights fade
We think of what you've made.
The memories you've left behind
You had such a brilliant mind."
"Please my friend,
Dont cry for me,
I am here only you can not see
Your memories keep me alive
While im here by your side
Think of all the good times we've shared
Because you know that we all cared,
Very much for each other,
Remember this my Friend and Brother."
Thank You for your time
