About the Poem

This poem is dedicated to my best friend who passed away at the age of thirteen. She was in a tragic car accident with her brother; she lasted in a coma for only 11 short days, but never made it to her 14th birthday, to 8th grade graduation, or even to finish basketball season. In loving memory of Deena.

Dedicated to the greatest friend in the entire world. I miss you, and I think of you everyday. I wish you could be there next weekend for our first prom. I love you.

Too Fast

It sounds so fun, driving around in the sun.
She was so innocent, young, and sweet.
She had the world right at her feet.
Who would have known that she would die,
leaving everyone she touched to grieve and to cry?
Into the car she got so fast,
She didn't know that today was her last.
It all came up to fast for sight,
But she didn't give up without a fight.
Her funeral was the saddest day of my entire life.
Reality cut through me like a knife.
In another place in another time,
Her life no longer a part of mine.

Absolutely beautiful. My best friend died when I was 14 the exact same way as described in this poem, down to the "sunny day". I'm now 19, and I don't think that I'll ever be fully over it. if you can write about things like this, you can write about anything. :)

One of my best friends was hit and killed while riding her bicycle on June 20, 2005. She was only 14 years old, and had just graduated from 8th grade 6 days before. We are now fundraising to build a gym in her memory.

We really liked this poem. We had lost a friend from a rare disease called Spinal Meningitis 6 months ago. He had just turned 14 on March 19, 2003 and on April 4, 2003 is the day that he died. The last day we saw him was the day before spring break. He started to develope symptoms during spring break. His funural was open cascet so we got to say good-bye and see him one last time. It's so sad because he will never get to graduate, share the memories with us , or even fall in love and have a family. That's the saddest thing. But we will all share the memories that we made with him.
Roxi

Melissa
Just recently i experienced the worst thing ever. Three good friends died in a car accident. The worst part is there bodies were unidentified. That is how bad this accident was. I just want you to know. i know how you feel! My life hasnt been the same since my friends died. The funerals werent easy either. it was so not expected. They were only 17 and 16. all best friends. 2 were a couple. I hope when i get to heaven they will be there right away to greet me.
sarah
that poem is really good! its like a window to your emotions. i recently lost my friend. i hate to say this but i wish i could have lost her the way you did. it would have been much better than her commiting suicide. good job on the poem.
