I Never Got To Say Goodbye…

Standard

I never got to say goodbye…

To see her smile once more.
A smile that reached her eyes,
made them twinkle and shine.

I never got to say goodbye…

To hear her melodic voice
fill my ears once more,
brighten my day, even if her’s
was not going so great.

I never got to say goodbye…

To a soul that cared so much
for others, snuggled under 
blankets, sporting her CP Bulldogs
shirt with pride.

I never got to say goodbye…

To a fighter,
a girl who carried so much

strength within her, whose
optimism never faltered.

I never got to say goodbye…

To my daily Snapchat buddy,
quick snippets of her day to share,

makeovers with her best friend, 
cakes she baked filled with love,
eating- her favorite hobby,
selfies in the car with her mom 
heading home from trips to the hospital.
Always a smile pervading her face. 

Always.

I never got to say goodbye…

Before she slipped away.
To tell her how much I loved her,
to tell her what a hero she was to me.

I never got to say…goodbye.
