The Parting Of A True Friend - Poem by Anthony Zeigler

As i sit here in the autumn rain
My heart seems to cry as well.
The agony that is going on inside
Is more unbearable than i can tell

It happened on the way
Home from school
She took off her jacket
Because she wanted to be cool

We were talking and laughing about the world
When the care went by.
We tried to get out of the way
with a startled cry.

She fell and the car smashed her
Into the road hard and rough
And as if
That wasn't enough.

The care speeding away
Continuing its wild run
That drunk freak
Who found this all quite fun

So now i sit here
And look at the stone
Born september 8,1994, died september 7,2009
And now im all alone

I remember the way
That we use to play
I recall
Those rainy days.

I recall days at the beach
And the movies and the park.
I recall learning how to clib trees
And scratching ourselves on the bark

I remember preschool and entering Highschool
With her by my side.
I recall how she gave me bunny ears
and then running off to hide.

I remember art class
How she loved using paint and glue.
I also remember
She was the best at that class to

But as i sit here
Looking at the stone so grey,
I realize that never again
Will we be able to play.

I realize that i will never see her smile
Or hear her laugh again.
And i will never be able to see her
Fing her man.

I have always been with her
And now im not.
Now i will go on living...
While she cannot.

Her birthday was the day after she died
Her gift was all wrapped and tied.
I couldnt have think of a worse time
to have died

Someone tried to cheer me up by saying that i
Could now return the gift to the store.
But that gift will be sitting on my desk
Forever more

As i stand here in the Autumn rain
My heart seems to be crying as well.
The agony that is going on inside
Is more unbearable than i can tell.
