A Year Ago

You took the life we were unable to give.
A year ago, you had a week to live.
And I forgive. I forgive.

If you had needed a reason to stay,
If there was something I needed to say,
I and we would have found a way.

A year ago you had a smile--
but that's been gone for awhile.
I keep it folded in a file.

My friend is dead. A year ago
I saw my world sink far below
our greatest fear. We didn't know

how close you were to letting go.


  1. Oh Sis, this was so heartbreaking. :(

  2. Ummm....I am not sure how I was signed on as you...
