  • The demons that lurked around you have now been silenced.
    The daily struggle of trying to find happiness, no longer exists.
    The act you used to play has now come to a close.
    The pain you used to feel has now been healed.
    With the news of your goodbye the community you created became inanimate.
    Loved ones listen for their thoughts but the battle is silenced by the triumph of heartbreak.
    With the sound of heartbreak drumming in our ears words vanish from our tongues, and instead roll down our cheeks and gleam our thoughts.
    Tissues lie around us mocking our grief.
    But out of the grief we call on the remembrance of you.
    Your contagious laugh echoes from the endless amount of pictures you took with people you loved.
    Your sense of humor still makes us chuckle from memories we have of you.
    Your athletic ability remains scoring points on the soccer field.
    The love you had for everyone around you still fuels our hearts to continue on.
    And now all that remains is the desk you used to sit in, filled by the outline of our memories.
