Moments can come and moments may pass

But you don’t get a chance to choose what day is their last

We all knew you were going to make a name for yourself

But this is not the way we wanted to say goodbye

To a brother a son our friend our loving hugs

The kid that we knew had a smile so bright

Always found a new way to sneak us out at night

And he would take us by the hands

And say we were gonna make something out of our small town

You gave us hope in that town

I know you had your problems and we tried to be your friend

I know you wanted to be whole again

But now it’s the end

And now we are left with a memory  and you

I feel you right here beside me

You and sam skating the wheels over and over in my head

I still cant believe your really dead

I can still feel your hug

Can still feel its warmth

How will the town ever be the same

Without you around to make a name

But you did it evan just like you said you would

You never stopped anything that you said you loved

You tried to be a happy kid

Hated school but honestly we all did

We used to chill at the corner across from the highschool

Smokes a few cigs before all four bells came thru

And then wed run and run

But we were still always too late

So detention yet again

And we would all sit and sneak out as soon as we could

Your memories live forever could

Just like we thought you would

I guess we think every one we love lives forever

But then we are humbled that the ones we love

Sometimes god loves so much more

We wanted to help you

I know sam was screaming from the heavens to

But I know he met you at that gate

And ya even to that you were probably late

But ya you brought us all together again

You did give the town another name to remember

  1. Beautiful! I can connect with this poem especially. I lost my brother 6 years ago in a car accident. And life hasn’t quite been the same. I’m not sure who you lost, but I understand the pain. I’m new to WordPress. I love to write and needed to find a better outlet than facebook and such. I went through some of your writings. I enjoyed them. Keep on writing! Xo
