A Poem by Taylor_Anne_xoxo


you would have turned fifteen,

in front of us all,

would have smiled,

when we wished you off into another year,

I don't know which hurt more,

picking up the phone this morning,

dialing your number,

just to remember you weren't going to pick up,

or realizing you didn't make it here with me today,

so I guess I want you to know that I love you,

and the part of you I'll forever hold in my heart,

started it's fifteenth year today,

for it's not really growing older,

it is but simply falling deeper and deeper,

in love with you,

as time goes on,

even without you by my side,

I'll let go of balloons today,

tie little letters,

I've wrote to you,

to the strings,

and black eyeliner,

will make it's way down my fair skin,

meanwhile I watch everything I hold close,

float up to a girl I no longer see,

save when I close my eyes,

because she took herself,

from this decaying world,

to her permanent home in the sky,

and the only thing that gives me peace,

is knowing I'll hold her close again,



xoxo, I love you baby girl, Happy Birthday....

I love it! it's very emotional... and I can tell they you have lost someone close to you...

I love the raw emotion in this poem, also the fact that it doesn't rhyme!

This is really emotional and sad :(
But very well written. Sometimes its difficult for a writer to portray feelings in his/her's work.
