A few weeks after my high school graduation, a dear friend lost his life in a car accident. He was very religious though not at all pushy about it. This is a poem about him.

You lost your life
at an intersection that I like to call
"Heaven and Life"
While standing amongst the broken corn stalks
I heard your laugh
And the very place where God took your soul
I found my faith
The broken glass crunched under my feet
and it sounded like angels singing
I decided to open my heart once more
and try to accept your sermons
Maybe if I'd let your Lord be mine
the pain wouldn't hurt so much
Your death placed a bandage
on top of my broken heart

You said it doesn't matter what I believe
You said that I should just believe
In anything
In God
In man
In myself
And that the Lord would hear my prayers
I shouldn't ask
I should thank
I should treat him like the best friend..
..that I have never had

The rain mixed my tears as I screamed
"God, take this pain..
..God, Claim this fear and take it away..
Set me free, dear Lord, set me free."
And he did.
And now I have your memory.
You were my savior to the Savior..
Rest, sweet child, young man
Your life was short,
Punctuated by one fatal mistake
a blink of your eye
Heaven flashed before you and you went
I didn't say goodbye, and I won't
because you served your purpose
and now I know, one day, I'll see you again.
