This is a poem that I want to dedicate to my cousin Jason. He was special to everyone and touched a lot of hearts. He died of suicide at the age of only 14. I just want to say I miss you, Jason - and I will always love you. I am 13 years old and in the 7th grade. Jason 4/27/84-3/6/99

I loved your poem. I just had a uncle pass away and this poem explains my feelings on what happened. I wish he was still here. He died at 43 years old, but his life wasnt fair at all. He was paralized at the age of 21 because of a motorcycle accident. So his life had been pretty bad. I loved your poem. Thank You for writing this. =D
i loved this poem it made me think so much I cried
I love it. I'm sorry for what happened. I for one can say it is the best work I've seen a 7th grader do. It touches me and I'm sure everyone else. I'm also a poet too I'm 14 in the eigth grade(goin to the 9th after the summer). I wish you the best in life. De'Marcus

You Meant So Much

You meant so much to all of us
You were special and that's no lie
You brightened up the darkest day
And the cloudiest sky

Your smile alone warmed hearts
Your laugh was like music to hear
I would give absolutely anything
To have you well and standing near

Not a second passes
When you're not on our minds
Your love we will never forget
The hurt will ease in time

Many tears I have seen and cried
They have all poured out like rain
I know that you are happy now
And no longer in any pain.

This poem touched me because my aunt just died and she mean't so much to me. I always remembered her having a beautiful smile and always being there. She was one of the nicest persons I've ever known. She fought a good battle before she left this world and she never gave up hope, and thats why she is such an inspiration to me.
I loved this poem, i cried when ever i read it! My best friend commited suicide and i kinda know what the author is going through!

Hello, i just wanted to say this and never told anyone about this. I had a good friend, he was my boyfriend and we dated almost 3 years. Until my family and I moved away from the community thats when he got messed up. He was always happy and making people laugh and looked as if he was never sad, or depressed. He lived his life very well. Always had asmile on his face, and every kid he saw loved him. He made everyone happy about life. This poem reminded me of him after i read it. One day we argued over the phone, i regret for saying what i said to him. At least 5 hours later i tried to call again, but he was in a accident. He was drunk while driving his 4 wheeler, and had been killed instantly. He wasn't that type a person before I left him. I always think of him. This poem really reminds me of him.
I just lost a loved on and this really expresses the way i way.
sucide is a really sad thing and i dnt understand why pplz do dis to end there life. suicide is a depression and makes other people blame other people and makes more pplz have the idea to do it to themslves to. my mum did it wen i was jst born then mai dad did it the start of this year and also my sister mai cousin and mai aunty. its just so sad! and its a easy way to get out of life but its a hard way for other pplz to forget the person you love has gone! its also a greedy thing to do to! i have to live mai life as a depressed teenager because my family gets blamed for suicide and its jst wrong please dont do it it puts pressure on your family and friends and all the opporunties you have in your life! i still cry maiself to sleep because of this but i am never going to do suicide in my life its stupid
I really like this poem. I have a very close friend of mine is going through a very rough time since she lost her brother and it was a nice poem to read.
I just wanted to write that this poem really touched my heart. My mother commited suicide 10 yrs ago so i can relate to this poem. I can sleep every night knowing that she's safe in God's hands now. R. I. P Mama 1961-1996
This poem says it all about the pain of missing my son and wishing for my son to be here with us, he commited suicide in 2004
Great Job! We loved it because of the hard time my girlfriend is having over losing someone she loves. It really helped her deal with it.
I was looking for a perfect poem that reminded me of my best friend I just lost 5/4/06 and that described how I felt and this one is the one. It really did touch my heart to the fulless and I'll always remember this poem b/c of that. GREAT JOB!
you are very talented, keep it up. nice way of putting your emotions into art.
Cassie, this is a beautiful poem which I found while I was looking for something to read at my loving Mother's funeral. The words are so fitting as she died last weekend having been in severe pain for many years. The tears flowed, yet again.
Very beautiful
beautifullly written!

no cheap words could ever desribe how treasurey this poem is, there could be no accurate explanation to what I felt when I started reading the poem or how the pieces of my heart kept getting smaller and smaller as I read down the lines deeper and deeper, but its definetly touchey! thank you
It was touching. Thank you.
Hi, I'd just like to take a moment and tell you that this poem is soo good and it really touched my heart. My cousin commited suicide last year in July, only if we knew why. We miss him so much and i never knew how to explain this, but this poem. wow, it just tells it all. I just might frame this and put it up in my room. His name was Jared, he had no reason to leave, at least thats what we thought. Thanks again for taking the time to write this, I bet you went threw the same thing. -13 year old missing her cousin :-(
