You made it to the point,
That life no longer holds meaning,
Yet you still lived with the greatest meaning of all,
To laugh when crying and to love the impossible.

I wanted to join you,
But then I realized that life,
Is not just given to you.
It is trusted to you.
It is something amazing,
And you proved it.
Throughout the tears that are cried,
We can still smile at a memory.

Although we cannot follow you,
We know you still linger,
Like smoke after a fire,
Like the red tracks after tears,
Like the ache from laughing to much.
Throughout the sadness,
We can still smile,
We only need to think of you.
