For Nick

I wish I could turn back time

and tell you that people loved you.

But I can't.

I would show you,

all the tears for you.

I would give you a hug,

and lead you by the hand.

 

Now all I can do,

is hope for a better place.

All I can do,

ignoring the memories at my place.

Wishing I had emailed,

wishing for a glimpse into your mind.

 

What went wrong?

I would ask you.

I know life is hard,

harder to get through.

But how could you,

abandon those who cared.

Not thinking about

who would pick up remains.

 

Now all I can hope,

is for a better place.

Where whatever took you

never remains.

All I can hope,

is that it was painless,

you slid away,

into dark abyss.

 

Where the sun will shine,

it will never rain.

The roads won't ice,

unless you want them to.

Where the grass is green,

and the sky is blue.

 

What did you want us to do?

To move on,

and not worry or cry?

To never feel guilty,

while you float in the sky?

But I can only wish

we had said goodbye.

Synopsis
I wrote this for a friend who killed himself. I didn't know him very well but I can't help but wonder what the world is missing.
