Friend - Poem by Tessa Eichhorst

Unable to fully put into words
how I feel, my heart is un-repaired
wanting to heal. I feel selfish at
times for hurting so much, but you
could heal everything with just one hug.

No answers have come of all this madness,
and yet I keep looking, searching, asking
God for some clarity. A shinning example
until your last breath, choosing to give
another life in your death.

The short time I really got to know you
makes all this harder to believe. You
ended up being a best friend, when I was
in need. Your smile captivated radiance,
your personality overtook the room. Your
understanding made you an amazing friend,
and in an instant it was all taken away.

Now we all sit here with memories and
questions, and only this hole in our
heart which remains.

Some day we'll have answers, some day
the ache will lessen, but until that
happens our pain will stay. Goodbye
for now, we'll keep living day to day,
and hope that justice will prevail, and
our hearts become sane.
