About the Poem

This is a poem in memory of Nikki who was killed in a car accident on 4/24/99. She was a good friend of mine and I want her memory to live on. The car accident was preventable, but the driver was going about 70 mph on Suicide Hill.

I am so sorry for your loss. Your poem is beautiful & has so much meaning. Especially at this time. My 17 year old daughter has just lost her best friend to a preventable car crash. Where the driver was also doing 70mph in a 30 mph zone, & turned off his lights to try to out run the police. Instead he killed poor Sarah, & we miss he ever so much. Thank you.

Gone So Soon

You took chances
Once too many times.
As a child you thought -
"Oh no, never me."
Life is a gift,
Given and taken at some
Unknown time.
Your time came too soon -
Your life was over in a flash.
The fun you shared,
The joy you brought,
All just a memory -
Behind us.

It will be a year ago April 13th that I lost a very good friend. He was 21. He died in a car accident. He had no chance of survival, he died on impact. He was the person that I could count on to keep my secrets and he always told me that he would take them to the grave. I just never thought that it would be as soon as it was. In memory of Travis Mayse I love ya!

This poem is amazing! I like this because I lost the love of my life and my best friend on 10/30/05! JOSH I LOVE YOU BABY! I also lost 3 other guys along with him in that car accident, they had stolen a car and the driver ran them into two trees and left them there to die. He is still alive and jus knowing this makes me sooo angry. But I think everyone should read this poem and think about the choices that they make! Josh. even though I can't touch you or you're not here for me to see you're NEVER truly gone. You're always in my heart! I love you soooo much!

I really liked this poem, it touched, because that exactly happened to one of my good and close friends. Who just passed away tow weeks ago, in a car accident. With 4 other guys, and the three that were in the back died. So in Loving Memory of Alex, Ben, and Matt

This poem touched me because My friend was in a car accident just 2 days ago. He was in the car with a drunk driver and he wasn't the one drunk. They told us that he will be gone in 2 days from now. And this poem made me think. I think other people should read this as well and think about the things they do.

Exactly two weeks ago i lost my boyfriend and best freind. he was only 15. he was in the backseat of a truck when his cousin ramed into a tree. Zack (my boyfriend) died instantly. he was only here for a short while but he was the kind of person that has an impact on anybody that knew him. this poem reminded me of him. you did a great job

laura
your poem really touched my heart as i know someone who got hit by a car. your poem was very powerful and hopefully made people realise how important life is and how easily it can be taken away.
Neil
I liked the poem alot. I lost 2 very good friends of mine on December 12 2002 in a car accident. It was a snow day but we did not get any snow. The Car the 4 kids were in backed out of a driveway and into the path of an 18 wheeled Chipper Truck. My friends Steve & Gabe were killed in the wreck the other two were in the hospital in Critical Condition. So my advice is please watch your speed out there and think of the people who are going to be hurt when you are gone because of a tradgedy like this.
Anna
I have just recently lost a friend in a hit and run involving a moped and, this poem really summed up my feelings, thank you
