Memoria in aeternaTo say that Cassandra was an influence on my life, is like saying the ocean is big. Such simple words cannot convey the vastness, the complexities, and the intricacies of who she was to me.Memoria in aeterna by switchbladeserenade
She was so large a part of my life, that with the naivety of the young, I assumed she would forever be there. She was an unchanging force from my childhood, a rock through my youth, and a friend in my adulthood. It still seems hard to fathom that she is gone.
I want to tell you who she was to me:
She was my inspiration. I remember watching her draw, and swallowing up every pencil stroke. I'd ask questions, and she'd slowly go over lines, telling me the purpose behind every one.

to my friendI once met a friend so greatto my friend by flipsidewanderer
someone to whom I could relate
I knew that soon she would depart
but her memory stayed in my heart
the bus ride home was shorter then
but we talked until the end
we talked about our hopes and fears
I felt like I'd known her for years
she spoke the words I can't forget
How life is what you make of it
she befriended me when I felt alone
I shant forget her kindness shown
and if there ever comes a day
when my path shall lead her way
I have so many things to share
to talk and laugh with love and care
to tell her how she changed my life
she changed my world with her advice
so Kat, this one's for you dear friend
you made me want to live again
You showed me how to share my love
with someone I know nothing of
I wish you nothing but the best
may the angels watch you while you rest.
