You Left the other day.
You thought it was best.
I heard the next day.
Why? You were so crazy,so fun.
You couldnt hear the sobs that you left behind.
You didnt see the destruction that followed.
You didnt see the tears streaming down so many faces
You didnt realize your influence.
You didnt wipe away tears and sit in silence.
You didnt show.
You werent there to sit and hear your dad break down.
You never saw the pain you caused.
If only you would have stuck around.
You didnt raise up others
You never saw the storm building until to late.
You didnt feel the hurt reverberating in the ground.
You didnt see the flood of tears that day.
If only you would have talked to someone.
You wouldnt have caused the silence that took over everones day.
The solemnity that flooded everyones hearts.
You werent there to lift up the hurt.
You dont even see the tears streeming down my face right now.

Your a good writter and honestly I think the poem itself should have gave a little backround info but over all it was good.
