In the memory of a good friend, the lovely Alex.
Posted on 17/12/2009
Its funny how certain times of year can trigger memories. As we head towards the end of another year my mind can’t help but drift back to my very good friend Alex Klement. He died last year, he was still in his early 20’s, he had his whole life ahead of him. In many ways he was way older than his years and I can’t help but think that perhaps Alex grew up far too quickly.. Too much money, too much success and all the pressures that come with it.
His death has of course effected all of his friends very deeply.. especially considering the way he died. But I guess we deal with things in our own ways. Unlike a lot of other people I kept to myself. I didn’t much want to talk about his death or what he had meant to me. It was the only way I could keep it together.
But here we are, more than a year later and it still makes me cry. I remember at last years work xmas party a co worker quite innocently asked me about him and immediately I was in tears at the thought of him. I remember a new years party from a couple of years ago when Alex was one of the last people to leave my house. I didn’t want him to leave either. I wish he wasn’t gone now.
So this song is for you Alex. It pretty much describes how I feel when I think of not being able to see you again. My heart goes out to your family at this time of year. xx
