Please Just Give Me This Last Year - Poem by RACHEL ZARANTONELLO
It's been one year, today.
A year I just want to erase.
Pretend like it never happened.
That day death showed its dark face
If I could just rewind my life
Live this past year once more
I'd do everything different
I'd do everything better than before
I'd tell you that I love you, I'd never leave your side
I promise I'll be a better sister, at least you'd know that I tried
This year I lost my only brother,
My best friend/love crushed my heart
Lost Hubert & My Dad both to cancer
Watching my world as it rips apart
I miss you so much I can't breathe, or think
so much pain & heartache inside
Just wishing that I could just have last year again
Before falling into this river of tears I cried.
