When all the kids start teasing me,
You speak up and make me full of glee,
When I get embarassed in the school,
You help me through acting really cool,
When I was drowning in the pool,
You saved me with your body as your tool,
When I made a wish that was a must,
You helped make it come true with all your trust,
Since noone gave me a chance,
You asked me to go to the dance,
I wish you were with me on this day,
But you are not and I have nothing to say,
Except when I'm cold and it's below zero,
I feel your spirit hugging me because you are my hero

The author's comments:
Its based on my very close friend.A guy at school.He was my hero because he was always there for me to laugh,talk to and make funny jokes.We would sit for hours writing songs and he would play the guitar.He was my very best friend but he had kept a scret.One day he passed away then i got to know he was suffering from brain cancer.I was so broken and in tears and all I have left are the happy times we shared at school and his memories.I know although he's gone i can still feel his presence like the wind.

This is the most beautiful poem! So touching, full of real emotion! So sorry you lost your friend, writing a poem about this must have been hard, I admire the fact that you could. Keep writing!
