~My Dearest Kaleb~
I was sitting on the beach crying.
Just cause i didnt like my life.
Cause i thought no one cared.
Cause i was being bullied.
You walked over and comforted me.
You didnt even know me.
But you walked over anyway.
You sat down next to me and asked me what was wrong.
When i told you i could tell you were a little angry but not at
I could see ﬁre in your eyes along with concern and care.
You stood up and at ﬁrst i thought you were leaving.
But you looked down at me and asked if i wanted to go for a walk.
I looked up at you and said sure.
Thats when we both smiled at each other.
This started our friendship.
From then on we were friends.
We hung out everyday following that one day.
We had our own spot at dundee where we hung out.
I still go there everyday even now that your gone.
I thought about getting a special candle just for you.
I would put it somewhere special to light it everyday that your
I always thought of you as the super nice gorham senior.
Who is caring.
Who is smart.
Who is funny.
Who listens to me.
You were always nice to me even though i was a freshman (still
Thats really rare exspecially for a friendship like ours.
Usually seniors hate freshman.
I guess there are some acceptions to every rule.
My dearest kaleb.
I am so sorry they hurt you.
No one should be bullied about their sexuality.
They had no right.
They were outta line.
I should have done something.
I feel guilty i didnt.
After all we were best friends.
There is nothing i can do now.
But your spirit has risen and will stay forever.
The only thing i can do now is never forget get you.
And never forget to remember all the good times we had together.
I hope i will see you again someday.
No correction i know we will someday.
I miss you so much.
I really wish that you were still here today.
Who is gonna be my best friend now?
Who is gonna be there when i get upset and need someone?
Who is gonna hold me tight and tell me its gonna be alright?
