She Would’ve Been



She would’ve been the person who would say, “YES” to hiking,
Or an impromptu swimming trip.

She would’ve been the first to start a pillow fight,
And the first to initiate a water balloon fight.

She would’ve ignored the mess we made,
Especially if it meant she made a new memory with us.

She would’ve been the first to say, “I love you so much.”
And, ” I can’t imagine my life without you.”

She would’ve been the first to cry happy tears if we ever succeeded,
And the first to encourage us if we failed at anything.

She would’ve been the first to say something that I was thinking of,
The first to ignore her own problems in order to help.

She would’ve been the first to make us laugh,
When something really bad happened.

She would’ve been the first to make that first courageous step,
When everything seemed dark.

This is how I remember my godmother,
And this is how she’ll forever be to me…

The little voice which booms from inside me,
That keeps saying,
“I love you so much…You’ve got this.”
