Losing your best friend is hard.

Graveyard Tan

Do you like my graveyard tan?
'Cause that's where I've been,
Everyday visiting the place
Where you now lay.
The decisions you made
Are all but in the past.
They linger overhead
Like a dark storm cloud.

We all look back
remembering the good.
But we all know
I was the one who
Took it the hardest.
No one saw your pain.
No one heard your fears.
No one knew you
Like I did.

Do you like my graveyard tan?
'Cause that's where I've been,
Everyday visiting the place
Where you now lay.
The decisions you made
Are all but in the past.
They linger overhead
Like a dark storm cloud.

No one knew why it happened.
No one could explain
The reasons why.
No one knew you
Like I did.
They were all there.
They could have seen,
But they didn't.
So now they all mourn.
They're all sorry.

Do you like my graveyard tan?
'Cause that's where I've been,
Everyday visiting the place
Where you now lay.
The decisions you made
Are all but in the past.
They linger overhead
Like a dark storm cloud.

My graveyard tan
Is what people see now.
Not the happy smile
That I used to wear.
They don't hear
The healthy laugh
I used to have.
All that is left...
Is my graveyard tan.

Truely a sad poem, my heart weeps into the blinding moon for the tears that would fill the oceans of the world many times over with the pain and torment I can feel with each word. The emotion is so raw and pure it literally drips off of the page and into the nightmares of my mind. To lose someone so close and at such a young age, I can only begin to comprehend the pain and agony that must hanut your dreams, I am sincerely sorry for your loss. I hope and pray that the light of your friend, the love that she held in her heart for you is still burning bright, for as long as this memory lives on her eternal candle shall never grow dim. This poem is very powerful and filled with such emotion for someone of your young age, admazing! You truely have a gift my friend! After reading this poem I find myself speechless and in utter awe... Bravo for such a great write!!! Purity of the soul, journey well!!! Angel aka Poem Buster

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
