Sorry You Had To Go - Poem by Crystal Castro

Oh friend of mine
why did you have to go
I had written to you for so long
and I didn't even know
all I know is
what I will remember and say
so you have passed on
on the first day of May
1997 is the year
and no longer could I see so clear
I was going to come
to lunch at noon
and I was hoping
it would have been soon
I feel like that I should
take some of the blame
and something should be on my name
the only thing I feel at fault for
is I was too late
I did not s succeed
in the task of that date
so on the 28th day of May
I'm really here to say
I'm sorry you had to go
