I’m sorry
But I’m saying good-bye.
I’m sorry for forgetting what you gave me
I’m sorry for thinking the worst of you
I’m sorry I let you fall into a hole so deep that you couldn’t dig your way out of it
I wish I had not given up on you
I wish I could have helped you
But I watched you fall and lose yourself
I watched the destruction you brought to yourself
You died in my eyes too many years ago,
I just can’t believe you,
The man who made me my tree house
My godfather
My old best friend
And my uncle
Actually died.
I’m sorry
But I’m saying good-bye.

Oh my god, this is AMAZING. I can feel the pain and guilt you feel through your words... Though I don't exactly know the circumstances of your uncle's death, this reminds me of the way I felt when my grandfather (who had been living with us for the past year and who was a real pain) died... Really great job.
