Many years ago, i knew a boy who I loved and adored. He was like a brother to me. And then he died.
Today, he would have been 25. But he will never reach that age.

You left me
so you could be forever eighteen
you took off to the sky
where I could never follow
and where you could never come back from.

You left me
and I waited, everyday
scared that I would forget
you're laugh, smile, voice. You.
And day by day, in my mind, you fade.

You left me
and years later, I'm still here
waiting, waiting for the pain to fade
for I still, sometimes, think I see you
in the corner of my eye.

But then I remember
you left me.

The End
