i understand how you feel by losing someone, i lost my father to cancer when i was six and this poem seemed to express exactly all the emotions concerning him. It shows you have felt true loss, but you know that if that person was still with you they would be suffereing more than we ever can, just by losing them. thank you for writing it, i will treasure it always.

I just had 3 close friends die within the same two weeks. my closest friend Joe was killed Monday August 2, 2004. He was in a motorcycle accident and hit a guardrail and then flew head first into a utlity pole. He was the type of person everyone loved and like and hated to like because he was himself and he didn't care. I miss him to death and this poem means alot to me.
Renee
I give you a 10 on your poem. it truly touched my heart because my younger brother who was 14 just committed suicide and really had no reason to leave. I think about it every mintue but it helps when i think that he isnt suffering anymore and that he is my angel and watching over me. Thankyou for writing this poem. It has all the words I wish i could say.
amber
The poem was great. I just recently lost my boyfriend to a drinking and driving accident. He called me that night to do somthing and i wasent home. I could have saved his life. My life hasent been the same ever since. I didnt get to tell him how i felt or how much i truly loved him. He was 20 years old. He still had so much more to give to the world. Just know that you are not the only one out there

Your poem was beautiful and very mature. It spoke to my heart and touched me. I have lost 7 friends and 4 family members in the last 8 years of my life. The most recent was a VERY close friend, Anthony, who committed suicide. My life was forever changed by him as I'm sure that yours was by your friend. Please allow God to work in your life and hold him near, believe me I've had trouble lately too. Always remember the person you lost can live forever through you. And the sunshine will be back after the storm.

Excellent. I lost my brother last year from suicide, and it was the most painful thing in my life, he was young and beautiful. only 18, people say he was a coward. but he had a disease (bipolar disorder) and it wasn't actually his choice. I miss him to death, he was my best friend and he will always be in my heart. I know it wasn't my fault, but sometimes you just say things that hurt somebody else. I did not get to tell him I love you one more time, he did and my last words were: "Go to hell", we had a fight that night. With those words I cry myself to spleep every night, and it hurts so much. now he's watching me and I know he will never leave me alone, someday we will be together again, even if that means I have to do the same. he's my twin, my soul, my best friend. my preciuos brother. I Love You Forever!
Jamie
Your poem was absolutely beautiful! I lost my father September 22, 1994 and my mother February 23, 2001. It is very hard because I am 25 years old with no parents.
