Just One More Time - Poem by jess schwarcz

I want to see you just one more time.
I want to hear your heart beating,
To see your eyes laughing,
To feel your arms around me.
Just one more time,
God just one more time.

I never answered your call,
That one desperate late night call.
You kept whispering for me into the night,
Until you slowly became as white as the moonlight.
I never answered your call,
Now you’re gone, and it’s my fault.

You’ll never know how I feel,
How bad I fucked up that night.
You’ll never know that I’d give everything,
Everything to undo what I did to you.

You’ll never know how many sunsets,
I’ve watched alone, again and again.
You’ll never know how every night,
I’ve counted the stars, even when they don’t shine,
I still count the holes they leave behind.
You’ll never know how many times,
I’ve cried your name,
Wishing it had been me instead of you.
You’ll never know how much you meant to me.
How much I would give to see you again.

I want to see you just one more time.
I want to hear your heart beating,
To see your eyes laughing,
To feel your arms around me.
Just one more time,
God just one more time.

You faded away into the darkest night,
Becoming as white as the moonlight.
I’ll never forgive myself for what I did,
I’m sorry Cameron, it’s all my fault you’re dead.
