Remembering You

Came to find your grave tonight, but
Here I am standing in the overgrowth
Thought Id be slick and not even cry
And yet I guess I should have known
It has been almost a decade now
When you left and got called home
I always thought youd be by my side
Now I cant even call you on the phone
I remember the day like it was just last week
You called and asked for some lavender soap
I didnt think much of it at the time, but
By the time Id reached you, Id lost all hope
Your eyes had glossed over, unmoving
And Ill never forget the chill on your skin
That day broke me, shook me, and
That was the day I lost my best of kin
I closed your eyes before the coroner took over
Running out, I just couldnt deal anymore
At the young, sweet age of seventeen
I felt the death that scarred my very core
I see you everywhere though, every day
I see you in the bright blue sports cars
I see you in the clouds covering the sun and
The twinkle in your eye shines in the stars
All those memories playing video games
Staying up past midnight just so we could play
The look on your face, that big goofy grin
Oh, and Ill always remember you that way
I just wish I could have said goodbye then
Maybe even held your hand as you went
Now all I have left to hold on to of you
Are all the hours of life wed already spent  
Ill never forget what you looked like
When I raced to be by your side that day
You left us while surrounded by so much love
And I swore, Ill always remember you this way
