    I wake up
    Realizing that you are gone
    Reality keeps forcing me
    To accept that you are done
    Finished with all the chaos
    This earthly world can bring
    Through with all the pain and problems
    And all those simple things
    Am I so selfish to wish that you
    Were here alive on earth?
    Am I wrong to wish you back
    Just so We won’t hurt?
    You left behind family and friends
    Lovers and colleagues the same
    But now you’re gone
    They took your life
    I’m sure for no worthy cause
    Am I wrong for hoping
    They can’t sleep at night
    For motivating this unjust loss
    No matter how hard I cry or pray
    I know you’re not coming back to us
    I can only wait until the day
    That we see u again
    I know that you will still be you
    Funny, crazy, a friend
    You were never perfect
    You weren’t an angel by far
    But damn boy you were you
    Your smile, Your laughter, your words
    Are embedded in our minds
    And forever you’ll live in our hearts♥ R.I.P P.V.W
    p.s your god daughter madison sure does miss her dude, i will always make sure she remembers you ♥ Brittany R.. a poem i wrote just for you vic ..
