Random Poem:

I Wish

I wish you were still here
I wish you would of never got in that fight
I wish you would of never got stabbed
I wish the doctors saw the internal bleeding
I wish you would of listened to me when I told you to go get your dad
I wish the pain would go away
I wish that I wouldn’t cry anymore
I’d do anything just to have one last day with you
17 is too young to die
You had your whole life in front of you
Some nights I sit up in bed all night because I can’t sleep cuz I’m thinking about you
There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about you
And about what my life would be like if you were here
I miss you so much
And you’ve been gone for 3 years
I know your in a better place but I just wish you were still here with me
