About the Poem
I wrote this poem after a kid in my school died of cancer. His death made me realize how delicate life is. I know that my generation tends to have the mentality that we are invincible but I see now that we aren't.

God took you away.
It doesn't seem fair,
but in the back of my mind,
you will always be there.
You weren't a close friend,
but our paths did cross,
and your absence in this world,
is to me a great loss.
You were too young to die, and
too innocent to feel that pain.
Only heaven benefits,
because you it has now gained.
I may think of you a little less
with each passing day,
but your strength is something I won't forget,
you have changed me in a way.
I wish for you eternal peace;
that's what you deserve my friend.
I hope I lead my life well enough
to meet up with you in the end.
