R.I.P


Yesterday i found out a friend of mine died in a car crash the previous night so this poem is for her.

Imagine if I was given one moment, just a single slice of my past. I could  hold it close forever, and that moment would always last.
I’d put the  moment in a safe, within my hearts abode. I could open it when I  wanted, and only I would know the code.
I could choose a time of laughing, a time of happiness and fun. I could choose a time that tried  me, through everything I’ve done.
I sat and thought about what  moment, would always make me smile. One that would always push me, to  walk that extra mile.
If I’m feeling sad and low, if I’m struggling  with what to do. I can go and open my little safe, and watch my moment  through.
There are moments I can think of, that would lift my spirits everytime. The moments when you picked me up, when the road was hard to  climb.
For me to only pick one moment, to cherish, save and  keep, Is proving really difficult, as I’ve gathered up a heap!
I’ve  dug deep inside my heart, found the safe and looked inside, there was room  for lots of moments, in fact hundreds if I tried.
I’m building my own  little library, embedded in my heart, for all the moments spent with  you, before you had to part.
I can open it up whenever I like, pick  a moment and watch it through, My little library acts as a promise, I’ll  never ever forget you
