Broken Rose - Poem by Connor Your

We were so in love or so we thought
Yes true we had fought
But they were resolved at the end of day one
We were crazy to love someone
hundreds of miles away
or so others may say
but you were my best friend
with me through a terrible end
and what is love
if not friendship above
and beyond the call of duty
when life isn’t a beauty
you were there for me friend
now we have faced an end

no more talking for you and i
whilst I wanna die
you are happy so it seems
without me in your life u still gleam
just to be surrounded again
by the love of those I call friends
and to feel free and true
I would try to watch over you
As your life was lived
And cherish what we did
I would wonder if u would remember
Our friendship that rolling that December
It snowballed out of hand
But was lovely as white sand
I felt that way and didn’t stop
I told you to choose and you chose not

Now I need you in my life
To handle this crazy blight
I don’t care what is the price
I'm willing to pay anything
Not short of living
Just to have that friend
Who was always there for me
And was so easy
For me to forgive
For me to relive
The special moments
And not the ones you are thinking of
Not the moments of what we called love
No. I mean the moments where we just smiled
And helped the others through the trials


So I continue to mope around
‘til my friend can be refound
Or my heart can forget
Which will be when I do sit
For that final game of fish
And am finished
With the smaller hand
So I drift through the sand
Without a love to call mine own
Or a smile to be shown
