I Remember…

Soo tomorrow marks the 4-year anniversary of my really good friend’s death. Lovely right? Hah! I wrote a poem 4 years ago, when it all happened – here it goes.

I remember when we first met.
We went bowling that night.
The second time we met,
Was the first day of our friendship.

I remember when we used to ride your 4-wheeler,
That was so much fun and scary all at the same time.
We would ride in your street and occasionally in the woods.

I remember when we would watch movies,
And somehow got distracted by other things,
And ended up not finishing the movies

I remember going to Kemah with you –
You were so amazed about all the fish flopping in theh water by the restaurant,
And then out of the blue, we saw a ship sinking.

I remember when we actually finished a movie,
One you didn’t like so much, but still got excited about it.
Whatever, you know you love High School Musical deep down.
You know you also loved Meredith and Alicia,
Learning the moves to the songs afterwards.
They sure do have some amazing dance skills, huh?

I remember when we had crazy dress up day for church.
I loved how you somehow managed to match except for your shoes,
So Alicia had to give you goofy hats and her 5th grade shirt to wear.

I remember when we would drive around,
Until we figured out where to go.
Those were our late night adventures.

I remember one evening we decided to go forth with our plan –
Our plan to decorate Lindsey’s room
We called her up when we were done and when her mirror fell off the wall and broke.
We told her to come; she came and was surprised.

I remember attempting to start a band with you, Lindsey, and Wey.
We all know how that turned out; it was still fun nonetheless.
None of us knew a song that we all knew how to play or sing.

I remember truck piling night with you and the rest of the Bible study crew.
We made gingerbread houses and had a contest between girls and guys.
The girls house was so much better.

Those are just a few of the many memories I have of you.
You were always such a carefree person and knew how to have fun.
I will never forget those days with you.
I will definitely miss you and you will always be in my heart.

Rock On, Rockstar!

Courage

This poem was for a Poetry Contest in 7th grade. The theme of the contest was Courage… and this is what I came up with. I just want to throw out there from the start that no one was on my mind when I wrote this. I have no idea where this came from – but from a 7th grader’s mind.

You
Everyday I wonder if you ever notice me
You talk, and walk but what do you see
Everyday I wonder if you love me
For I love you as the sky is blue
I have always wondered what’s new with you
I never notice how special you are
Until you told me you were going to move far
Away from me in a land of nowhere
Where people get paired

I wanted to ask you something really bad
But I couldn’t, I just couldn’t
I didn’t have the nerves and I was sad
I knew I had to ask you before you left
But I was mad
I didn’t know what I would do without you
You said that we were always going to be friends
No matter what happens

You really mean a lot to me
The thing is, is that I love you
And I don’t know what I’d do without you
You mean so much to me
And the thing I’ve been waiting to ask you
Is to marry me

Just Watch

It’ll Get Better
And the road gets narrower till there’s no place to go.
You’re stuck wondering what to do.
No one is around to guide you, to lend a hand.
Lost and confused, you wonder if everything’s going to be okay.
Is it?
Time will tell.
Gotta live it second by second.
Just hang on, even if you’re hanging by a thread.
It’ll get better.
Just watch.
