I lost a friend recently. I am currently at work watching the news and crying. A murder took place last night near my campus and he was the victim.
As a best friend and classmate of his I thought it only right to write for him. This is my words, that I will read at his funeral.
In cold blood, and gone so soon, We had ambitions, Took the moon,
We did our best, We went all in, but you were lost, to someone's sin.
They caught the suspect without bail
And caused regret, in me no fail,
At 26 you were so young,
And without you, We must be strong,
We laughed, we fought, for little things,
And still you taught me that one spring,
That friends can last, even after death,
I wish that it had been my breath,
I promise that we'll meet again,
Someday not soon, when I ascend,
And until then, I'll live for you,
And do the things we wanted to.
