A Poem by Krista

A memorial for a lost person.... RIP

Is it only all just a dream,
is it fantasy that you are gone,
really gone from my life?
Or is it all actually really real,
is the prank on me that you,
are gone from this life and next?
Out of all
that could happen why you?
Why not me instead?
You didn't deserve to leave this world,
not today or tomorrow!
You had more purpose than many,
I should have been the one to die
not you!
Not ever your!
I could still leave this planet,
a promise is a promise though!
I promised to stick by her
if anything was to happen to you.
You had me make the promise,
the one promise I wasn't sure I could keep!
Yet I'm gonna go against all odds,
fight to keep strong!
To change who I am,
to change what I believe.
You asked me to stick by her side,
if you were to die!
I prayed that it wouldn't happen,
that you would outlive me no matter what,
instead the opposite happened!
You only did good and helped people 
I only did evil and make things worse!
You had me promise something,
I wasn't sure I could keep
not without help and support from others I trust.
It wasn't supposed to be this way,
not at all!
Everything in me,
says I will wake up to a message from you
saying everything is gonna be okay!
You weren't just a friend,
but family,
a sister I always wanted.
A person with a caring heart,
you put others before yourself
risking everything you didn't have to
because that you are gone from this life!
RIP forever 
I will miss you!
I will hold my end 
and stick by who you asked me to
try to keep her safe from what I may!
