I met a girl
And we hit it off immediately!
She had a beautiful smile
And always had a story or two to share
I knew her for a short space of time
But it was more than enough to make us friends.
We spent time together on 2 occasions
Celebrating the start of a new life
And mourning the end of another
But we hit it off immediately
Swapped numbers so we could check up on each other.
Then she stopped responding to my messages
But she was always on my mind!
So I decided to confront her
Why had she gone silent?
Had I done/said something wrong?
Or was ours a seasonal friendship?
And our season was spent!
Those thoughts would have been more comforting than the truth!
The girl I had met
The girl I befriended
Had passed away!
She was no more!
I was not there when they buried her
But I too shed a tear
i didn’t get the chance to say goodbye
To share one more joke
To smile and tease each other
To hear her say I know what I want in life!
To hug her
To hear her laugh!
I think of her often
I miss her
