One year I went to a summer school.
And there was a girl there
With shining eyes and
An award winning smile.
She was kind to everyone and
Excluded no one.
She always laughed with others
But you could go to her when you
We talked for hours and
Quickly became friends.
Last year I went back to summer school.
The girl was still there.
She had sad eyes but
Kept the award winning smile.
She was kind to everyone yet
She never laughed properly
But you could always go to her
when you needed it.
We talked for mere minutes and
I guess I lost a friend.
This year when I went to summer
The girl was no longer there.
Rumours of suicide surrounded
And no one was kind to us all.
Everyone excluded their-selves.
Silence consumed every thought and moment
Because no one was there when we
truly needed it.
Memories of talking haunted me and
I couldn't help but miss my friend.
