You are unforgettable.
I have been thinking of you
a bit extra during these days of solitude.
Yet, I have not seen you
or heard your voice for several months.
Its incredible what life does to people.
You were so privileged yet you earned it.
Maybe its because you started
from the bottom onto the top
and that’s what happened.
I had my marigold ready to go
and hold it close to me.
You always provided me so much guidance
yet I still think to this day,
that I don’t have enough.
If I can go back in my past,
I wish one more day,
one more piece of advice,
one more lesson to learn,
one more memory to make with you.
I have to take it all
and be grateful that I got to know you.
Out of all the people in the world,
I really wish you were still here and nearby.
Given what I know,
I will always hold onto everything
you have given me.
I will never forget
that you helped everyone,
and you didn’t had to help.
But you did it anyway.
You provided the best for me to thrive
yet I failed.
I failed you.
Maybe I should sleep on it
until I have a clear idea.
To you, I wasn’t a failure.
You helped me recognize
the true potential of myself to thrive.
You taught me to be strong for me—
not for them!
I learned from the best
and I hope to pass on the same principles
to others as I spread marigolds all around
because of you.
