Remember - Poem by Ben Coomer

you remember a road
the pavement once burned from the tires
the glass had finally landed on the ground
a car had lost its driver
you remember the guilt that flooded your soul
one friend
gone
might as well have been a million
so for now you stand in that hospital room
angry, bitter, and utterly alone
when you see a figure
blonde, skinny
you have seen this person before
gone
and now alone next to an empty shell
you see him again
as the tears stream down your cheeks
you leave
knowing one thing
treat each day like your last
because it is
