How Could This B

Started as friends, that’s where my life begins, thirteen years old with a flame that never grew old. Family wasn’t a word I used to describe how you and I loved deep inside. I still can’t believe you left me soon, I missed the call and you were gone to soon. You may not know wherever you are, but your smile shines brighter then the Morningstar. Lost in ways I can’t describe, tears in my eyes I can’t sleep at night. Besides me always in my mind and in my heart, there’s a blank space in me where your name could have been from the start. It didn’t matter what you did or who you were with , I still looked at you the same way we did when we were kids. I hope Heaven treats you well because hell on earth is what I felt.
