To See You Again

To See You Again



I tearfully walk into your room 
I hadn’t been there since you died
Still the air leaves a remnant of your sweet perfume
Remnants of clues in their places which lead to your suicide

The poetry you wrote with your heart crying out of pain
Printouts of what the bullies wrote to you on the internet
Are all left here gathering dust yet still they remain…
A fresh reminder to my soul each day of a hell I’ll never forget

A picture of you still hangs on the wall above your bed
With a smile that used to light my sunny skies to no end 
A time when you were so happy in everything you did and said
A moment of time when I was able to see you again

I walk out of your room and slowly close the door
Feeling guilty that somehow, I’m leaving you behind when I do
The deafening silence in the house makes me cry even more
What I wouldn’t give to see a glimpse of you

To this day, I find myself still searching for you in places you would go
Praying that I’ll see you there alive, instead of in the memories we spent
I cry out your name, hoping you would respond to let me know….
That I am still able to see you again

The sun is slowly going down and darkness will fill the air
Will cover the places of your existence once there
Covering your smile that allowed the sun to shine everywhere
Covering my sunny skies through your love’s glare…

    Painful, yet incredibly deep in the end. Few can detail it like you do. The heart's vulnerability is strongly intense.
