This Past Year
by Andraelle  Davis

All summer I tried to pretend nothing was wrong,
That you weren't really gone-
So that I wouldn't have deal with the pain,
Of knowing that I'd never see you again.

Then came basketball and you still weren't here,
You weren't here helping us with each and every cheer-  
All the fun we would have had this fall,
Traveling from town to town playing basketball.

Then the memorial I planned for you,
Made me realize this was all so very true.  
People worried your tree wouldn't make it through the winter storm,
But I knew, come spring, it would still be in its true form.

Then it was time for volleyball to start,
And I knew you wouldn't be here to take part-
In all the fun and action of playing each game, 
And I'd never be able to yell out your name.

This past year has been so hard without you,
And all of these events I've been through-
Although, tonight, your chair sits empty,
I know in our hearts, you'll always be.
