Topic: Remember me?

Growing up together
A bond stronger than steel
Birds of a feather
Friends for life, deal?

One day you missed meeting me
Outside the school
Hit and run driver
Red light equals green?

Shiny white machines
Kept you from departing
There is always hope
They had said, unbelieving

You proved Them all wrong
gave Death his ticket back
Your broken body healed
Scars now familiar medals

I am a stranger to you now
Introduce myself every time
You sit in your deafening silence
My tears flow freely

Our bond is broken, shattered
my memories all that remain
Of the friend I lost
Brother I never had.

Re: Remember me?

hard to focus on what was had, rather than what was lost.  this is a very sad and touching write.
