reading this poem was really wierd. my grandfather, my bestfriend, passed away in september of 2005 and i have to do this project in my english class (im a 12th grader) and i have to memorise a poem and tell why i choose it, well i just went to a google search and just clicked on this one and it said "laura, laura, aura" in it. that's my name! i love it! it gives me the chills.

This pome has touched my heart. Because I had a son to die 7 years ago, and I tell him that I miss him so much. I wish that I could hold him one moor time. His name was James. I found this pome because I was looking for one to put in my story about him we had to do a saying and then relate it to our life and this is the one I chose.

Aneta
I could relate to whatever she is feeling. My cousin was killed last August in a horrible car crash. I haven't seen my cousin in about 7 years, because he lives in another country. I miss him everyday, and everyday I think of him. He will never see my son, my son will never meet him. It's really hard to lose someone you trully care about. I know I will see him again someday. My heart goes out to everyone who lost someone they really cared about and loved

The poem touched me in so many ways. I can relate to it. When I lost my sister I felt as if she was still there. I would have dreams of her. I would be outside and it would feel as if she was there. I would here her say my name. I sometimes here I love you lil sis. I'm here waiting for you to come.

I really enjoyed reading your poem. I'm not exactly sure who you wrote that about, but when I read it, I thought of my Mom. She passed away almost 4 years ago. But like they say, there can be a million people that read that same poem and each one will vision a different thing. When I read it I thought of my Mom. Your poem is fantastic. You really do have a talent.

Erika
I recently lost the love of my life to a train wreck. The pain that I'm feeling is unbareable. I've lost people in my life before but I have never felt this much pain. I wanted to say that your not alone when you say you hear him calling your name, because I always hear Ricky (my love) calling me but I never see him. We have to remember their in a better place now and they don't suffer anymore.
Jeana
Dear Laura I know what you have went through, and I feel for you. I lost My sister almost two years ago. She had Cystic Fibrosis and she had many other complication. I have lost many friends and family members when I say many I mean like 13 in the past two years. I just found out that my mom has Breast Cancer wjich I dont need to go through another loss. Sometimes I don't even know how I got through this, maybe because of god. I hope that you can be happy and peacful again for you shall be with whomever you have lost
geraldine

I too hvae lost a loved one as well to a car accident. It has been almost four years, but it still seems as though it was last week. I find it hard on some days to keep a dry eye. I find that the one thing that keeps me going in the world is to know that my Aaron truely loved me and is in a much better place.

I loved the poem because it made me realize that I have to let go of him, but I can keep him in my heart. I am only 14 an I lost my daddy half a year ago on Dec 14th 2001 and the holidays were espically hard. He died un-expecidetly when his semi was hit by a oncomming train that was in his blind spot and there was no guard rails on the tracks. Thanks so much for your poem! It helped me to move to the next step.
Ayshe
Just want to say your poem touched my heart tears pour as i type. My boyfriend was murdered a year ago, he was stabbed to death. The pain is unbearable. I know. I don't know how we are ment to get over something like this but i do know that they are watching us telling us that they too love and miss us. There isn't a thing any one can say to make us feel better or take away the pain but i do know understand the pain that you are going through. You have my vote a million times.
