For you, William

It's feels like I've known you for an eternity my William
My lover
My best friend

Every day we would talk, putting the world to right.
You were never far from my sight
Talking about our dreams. Our fears.
Nothing comes close to our relationship my dear

Together we laughed & cried
Smoking weed together until our brains fried.
We used to daydream about where we would be in 20 years time
We would dream of it over a bottle of wine
Through the toughest of years we stood by each other
But the drink and drugs took over

I tried to help you like I did before
But my help you didn't want no more
You put your love into the hands of another
I watched from a distance, watching no one bother
Your spiralling out of control
I feel you're pain in the depths of my soul

Your love looks after you now, sitting through the sleepless nights
Watching you as you try and rebuild your life
But the struggle too strong
You can't muster up the energy to go on

Why didn't you call me?
Why didn't you say goodbye?
Why did you have to go?
Things where said in the moment so fierce
But I would have stood by you like I did for all these years.

Meet my son Louie, I know you would have been proud
It saddens me to know he will never see you around
I miss every inch of you dearly
Writing this, it makes me teary
Peace and love my friend
I know I'll see you at the other end.

This is so tragic:(
I can feel the pain.
