A Letter To Wayne

I usually try to stay positive, but this is something ive wanted to post for about a week or so. Its been saved in my drafts and im just gonna go ahead and post it. Im not sure why, just venting I guess. If I could disable comments i would because im not looking for sympathy or anything of the sort. I came across this song the other day and it keeps playing in my head. So to anybody who has lost somebody this song hits close to home.

Sunny days seem to hurt the most
Wear the pain like a heavy coat
I feel you everywhere I go
I see your smile, I see your face
I hear you laughing in the rain
Still can't believe you're gone

Chorus:

It ain't fair you died too young
Like a story that had just begun
The death tore the pages all away
God knows how I miss you
All the hell that I've been through
Just knowing no one could take your place
Sometimes I wonder who you'd be today

Would you see the world?
Would you chase your dreams?
Settle down with a family?
I wonder, what would you name your babies?
Some days the sky's so blue
I feel like I can talk to you
And I know it might sound crazy

Chorus

Today, Today, Today
Today, Today, Today

Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat
The only thing that gives me hope
Is I know I'll see you again someday

Kenny Chesney sang it, and it brought me to my knees in the fetal position to hear it cause it rang so true. Not a day goes by I dont remember you. Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I long to talk with you again. But mostly I cry. You taught me how to live and showed me how to die. You were my big brother and I was lucky enough to become best friends with you. There will never be another like you. It has been six and a half months since you were taken from us and i still can't believe your gone. I love you big bro.

Love,
Amber
