Stand and look down

Don’t bother yourself

anymore

my dear friend

Put away the deep

red wine

and the

matching

wine glasses

I shall drink no more

for

I am no longer here

by your side

Stand and look down

I am under such a

beautiful blanket of grass

warming my bones

Yes, it is me

your old friend

and drinking

buddy

I am way down

there looking up

wishing I could speak

to you just one more

time…

You remember me well

I was the one who was

so afraid to live

yet afraid to die

I used to be

bold and arrogant

and very proud

but, something

happened

when I grew

more wise

I woke up

from my

slumber

and

I found that

the only

thing in life that

mattered

was

love

that was

the day

I finally

broke down

and cried

on your shoulder

I wish of you just

one thing

that you never

forget

that I cared

about you

and that

you do not

forget me.
