I Remember - Loss Through The Eyes Of A Child

I remember
The times when we
Watched the sunset
I could see the reflection
In your eyes

I remember
Sitting on the brick wall
Along St. Angela’s Street
The time when you almost fell off
And cracked your head open

I remember
Chasing butterflies
At Wolf Brook
No matter how hard we tried
We couldn’t catch up with them

I remember
Lunch times at school
The dinner lady looking at you
With surprised eyes
Because you wanted extra veg

I remember
When you told me the news
Leukaemia
That one word
Keeps sounding in my head

I remember
Seeing you there
Hair falling out from the chemo
Frail and weak
Not being able to stand

I remember
Trying my hardest
Not to break down and cry
At the sight of seeing my best friend
Hurting and in so much pain

I remember
Walking down long corridors
Visiting your hospital bed
Wanting to stay with you
Forever and never leaving your side

I remember
That phone call
All the tears I shed that day
And all the tears I’ve shed since
You passed away

I will always remember
Watching the sunset
St. Angela’s Street
Chasing butterflies
Lunch times
Leukaemia
Holding back the tears
Long corridors
Phone calls
Losing my best friend

But most of all
I will always remember you.
