Nate

I was going through a lot

No one understood

I wanted to sit alone

I didn\'t want to speak

I needed to focus on me

I needed to fix myself

 

Everyone was mad

Everyone wanted me to speak

They would push me

They didn\'t understand

What I was doing was good

 

You, understood

You, gave me space

When I sat alone at lunch

You just sat next to me

Told me you wouldn\'t speak

You understood what I was doing

You just didn\'t want me to be alone

 

I love you for that

I thank you everyday

You understood

When no one else did

 

School ended

And we graduated

I remember the look on your face

You were ready to take on life

You looked me in the eyes

“We did it”

You hugged me

 

Summer took me to California

Summer kept you home

We didn\'t talk much

I wish we did

I wish I thanked you

One more time

Because that day

a summer morning

I got the call

I could breath

I couldn\'t speak

All I could do was cry

 

I wanted to fly back

And say goodbye

I couldn\'t

I had to stay here

Alone

Without you

Without the only person

Who understood

 

You crashed your car

And now you\'re gone

The only one

Who understood me

Gone forever

And I can\'t get you back
