What’s happening, Levi?
I was wondering if I could ask you for one more day?
One more day to tell you that it’s going to be okay?
One more day to tell you that I love you?
One more day to tell you that so many of us love you?
One more day to see I got a message from you?
One more day to laugh at something you said or wrote?
One more day to think that I might see you again?
One more day to work it all out?
One more day to see your photo and know that I can chat with you?
One more day to know you are there?
Just one more day…
This hurts. I’m going to miss you.
Your comrade forever
