On December 2, 2013, exactly 2 years after Morgan’s murder, her friend wrote the following heartfelt words:
Today is just another day
Today is just a day…
The day your battle became ours
The day you were robbed, and us too
I loved you long before this day
I loved you for the hundreds that came before it
Two years ago today you took the colors with you
leaving the snow you longed for behind
The sunset and sunrise without your love burned redder in sorrow
Mountains fell silent- void- of sound as you left.
Snow untouched, attempted to preserve the moments
Stop the world from turning to keep you near
…but you had to go
and I prayed for the first time
– wake up from this dream
but each day this dream turns more real
and you become the dream
fading with every sunrise
This world slowly filling with colors I thought I had lost forever
as now you are close in reveries of starry nights and philosophy
today is just a day.
All the words that matter are: I love you.
