"Flood of Blue" Dedicated to Carlos Serrano Oct 2, 1995- Nov 15, 2013

There is a flood in the school,
A flood of blue
Blue clothing, blue tears, blue faces
A flood of broken hearts
A flood of fake smiles and brave faces
A flood of grieving people
A flood of questions
Why did you leave us?
Why did it come to this?
What led to this?
How did I not see this coming?
How did none of us, who saw you every day, smiled with you every day, not know there was something going on?
The questions we don't want to know the answer to
How did it happen?
Did you feel any pain?
Are you at peace?
There is a flood in the school
A flood of memories
A flood of pictures
A flood that won't let you be forgotten
