About the Poem

This poem was written for a friend of mine that left us, seemingly much to young. But she always seemed to have an inner knowledge that urged her to lead the most fulfilling life she could.

Forever Young

Trapped in the glorious years
within the memory of belief, lost of all grief.
Take the reasons,
which once seemed so clear,
but never mind, you have nothing to fear.
For you my fried will be, forever young,
Forever in the heart of memories.

Lost in the glory of all time,
the wisdom was there within that smile,
You see you could have told us,
there within lies the mystery.

So shed a smile, and grin a tear,
For you my friend, will be,
Forever young, Forever young.
Forever in the heart of memory,
We see not through or misery.
Forever young, forever young.
There's a new angel tonight.

I just lost a good friend only 17 years old. I had a crush on him. He talked to me everyday and inspired me. We were going to school soon about to go play pool then his mom called the school and told us he's just been shot dead and murdered in his home trying to protect his family from the intruder. I couldnt believe it i was looking foward to that day with him and i just spoke to him over the phone at 7:45. He was pronounced dead at 8:30. Im so broken

Angela
This poem was great! I had three friends die in a car wreck September 8th, 2004. Colby (dated him), Robert, and Brandy (she was 4 months pregnant). This wreck really hit home with me and my friends cause we're all really close because we lost a close friend in 2001 due to a gun wound to the head. Tring to find some poems to put in the yearbook for them
Ana
i thought this was a good poem, in 2004 i lost alot of people in my life, and reading this poems makes it somewhat easier, to handle. I lost my girl Melissa on the 22nd of January in 2004 due to a wreckless driver. She was only 19 and she had her whole life ahead of her, but because of that driver, she is no longer with us, and she is truly an angel and will always be there.
Jennifer
Reading your poem broght a tremendous amount of relief to my heart. I recently watched the life of my best friend slip away form her after a fatal four wheeler accident. She was only 19. I miss her and this helps. She will always be forever young in my heart. I love you Angela!
ruks
i was deeply touched by this poem for it offered another aspect ,far better one ,to cope up with young and untimely death.
Tijana
My uncle died 8 months ago of a heart attack. One of my best friends died 3 months ago (a drunk woman hit her with her car as she was walking home late from work). Now another girl that I knew (not my best friend or anything,. she was just a neighbor that I loved. she was really nice). got shot at work. WHAT IS GOING ON!?!. I just wanna say that this poem touched my heart. : (
Joshua

My best friend of 6 years just passed away 8/3/04 after losing the battle to Cystic Fibrosis. To this day, I'm still having a hard time believing he's gone and that we'll never see each other again. Rest in Peace Brandon, you deserve it

emma
I love this poem cause it touched my heart i have just recently had one of my best friends pass away
Samantha
this is a wonderful poem. my best friend just died two days ago, another good friend died 2 months ago, and my other best friend died 2 years ago. so this has been really hard for me, but your poem really helped because all of them were no older than 21. So they will all be forever young
Zachary
there was this kid at school that i talked to. He wasn't my best friend but he wasn't my lowest friend. He was right in the middle . I dont know there is just somthing that needs to be said here. He was always happy and he loved to talk to other people. He was always nice to me and never put me down. I think that he is just not resting right. If someone out there reads this message all i want you to do is pray for him. Somthing tells me that even though hes gone its still not over. Thank you
teagan
i've lost 3 close mates in the last 6 months who were all at a young age so this poem was really touching for me THANKS
E.
The poem is beautiful. It puts into words things that are so hard to describe. I lost a really good friend of mine on Oct. 5/03 in a car wreck. The day before he died he told me he never wanted to be over the age of 21. He will be forever young.
sara
