Death of Friend Poem

Remembering A Dead One

This poem is dedicated to a lady who I admired the most. It was so hard to see you go even though it happened when I was nine and now I am 13 I will never forget you!!

Why Did You Have To Go So Far Away??

© Rebekah
Remember when the sun shined so bright,
you were here and you love me with all your might.
Now the good lord has taken you away,
but in my heart you will always stay.
When you died I didn't think I could go on,
but your love assured me it would be okay and I would have to move on.
There are so many thoughts I left unspoken,
wishing I could go back and tell you everything that left me heart broken.
Walking by your casket was too much to bare,
hearing people whisper this girl is too young to care.
I know I was just nine when you died,
but it still haunts me deep down inside
Sometimes I see you standing there
and I try to run but you turn into thin air.
Life will never be the same since your gone
but one thing you taught me is how to be strong.
If I could speak to you one last time I would say
"why did you have to go so far away?"
