A poem I wrote about a year ago for my late best friend, Jonathan. As of this month, it's been 10 years since he lost his fight against cancer. This poem is nothing compared to how much I love him, but I hope I still got my feelings across.Rated: Fiction K+ - English - Hurt/Comfort/Friendship - Words: 278 - Reviews: 4 - Favs: 1 - Published: 10-14-11 - Status: Complete - id: 2961095

I can still remember how
Your eyes deep-set beneath your brow
That were more like melted bronze than hazel
Would always-without a doubt-always twinkle.
Your smile a little lopsided;
The pockets your hands would hide in;
The way you were never scared
Of death arriving out of nowhere.
You were so very young when you had to go;
I was so very young when you left me alone.
I couldn't face the world without you here;
Why couldn't you make it through the year?
We made a memorial for you by your favorite tree.
Can you see, up in Heaven, can you see?
Do you know how much I miss you?
Do you wish you were still here? Well, do you?
Even after all these years, nine to be exact
I can still remember my foolish, childish pact
You must have been sick for a while 'cause when I met you, it wasn't there.
So I wanted to know, as a little kid, what color was your hair?
You'd be fifteen by now, if your were still alive
And if you were, would you still be by my side?
I can barely remember those times we had
But you yourself, I'll never forget. You: Jonathan.
A/N: I wrote this, maybe a year ago for a dare: Write about something you've never shared with anyone before. And, of course(though you wouldn't know) poetry is my forte, so it's a poem. I still miss you more than ever, Jonathan. If you can see this up in Heaven, I hope you like it. I love you, RIP.
