Good bye
by Jaliyah Lewis

Bang, bang you slip farther and farther away

You were there

But now you’re gone

Gone away and now the color pink is starting to turn gray

Your beautiful smile has been gone for a while

The dial of denial is slowly turning

I'm burning inside And now not even the shoulder of god can dry my tears

You never got mad

I never heard you scream

You were the beam that could light even the darkest of souls

The time has come

You’re beautiful
