Memories By Lauren Metal

Carlos remembers.

Her eyes.

I'll never forget her eyes- the cold, distant, panicked look etched so deeply on her delicate features as I stood helplessly by her side and told her everything was going to be okay.

It wasn't okay.

She's gone.

I watched those beautiful blue eyes close for the very last time.

Now, I see her eyes when I'm awake. I see them in my sleep.

Her eyes haunt me. They watch over me.

I was never close to Alex, but in those final moments, she took on new meaning in my life.

And now, she'll be with me always.
