To Those Who tell me To Just Let Go
I hope you never have to miss his laughter
or the smile of your best friend.
Never know what it’s like to miss him,
Or need to hear his voice just one last time.
I hope you never wake up crying
After a dream that felt so real.
A dream in which he was there with you,
A dream that you could feel.
I hope you never know the grief that comes in waves.
Never know that he isn’t there,
Even when you almost think he is.
I hope you never have to question faith
And wonder if any of it was true.
If everyone who told you about God
Was just lying to you.
I hope you never hear the news
That he isn’t waking up.
Never have to see his empty face
Before they lower him in to the ground.
I hope you never know what its like to cry
Till you think your tears are gone.
And then you cry some more and you just wonder why.
I hope you never have to give up
And try to block out the memories.
Never have to fake a smile,
Or suffer all alone.
To those who tell me it’s been long enough
And that I should just let go,
I hope you never have to feel the sadness
Or know the pain that I know.
Michael Gage Brittain
I will miss you forever. Just as i would have loved you forever.
