Since That Day (April 15, 2012)

Dedicated to Francisco Robles Amador:

Painful words to tender ears.
Words are written with falling tears.

With each passing just a little more numb,
Pity from most, poker-faces on some.

An air of confidence, a cool exterior.
But what did you see in your mirror?

So you say there were mountains in your way,
Looking back, I wish you had stayed .

A hell of a character; never dared to admit,
Real and genuine; no need to fit in.

A trait I wish I’d learned in time
So that way I’d never hide.

Who knew you’d leave in such a harsh manner,
That life would deal you such a blow with its hammer.

I remember the words you said to me,
I never knew they’d stick with me.
“Don’t change for them. You’re different.”

I remember how you opened your heart,
You told me things that I still doubt.

How stupid of me to change for them,
Then I learned a thing or two of them.

In the end, I’m glad I stood my ground,
I might just understand you now.

We weren't so different in the end,
I wish I could have told you then.
