About the Poem

I wrote this poem a little before my sixteenth birthday, right after my dad died.

I love to write poetry and to read others! It is a good way for me to get my feelings out on paper considering I'm not the kind of person who likes discussing my feelings to just anyone. It usually stays locked up inside me.

We will reunite one day in that clear blue sky,
and start over where we left off, with your silent goodbye.

It's almost been a year now and tears still fall,
but tears from a sorrowful heart seem to have no time at all.

We had a bond, not like one you'd find everyday,
I wish you were here, for this I really wanted to say.

Your face I still see clearly, your laughter is still in the air,
why were you taken away from me? It is more than unfair.

And now I must learn life not sure of knowing the way,
you promised to be here to help me, someday.

I feel lonely now, scared and unsure,
why can't you be here to help me through this dark door?

It was you I loved and adored for so long,
but now I'm expected to move on and be strong.

I miss you more as the days go by,
sometimes I ask questions but can't help to cry.

Why were you taken out of my world in a blink of an eye?
only if I would have had a chance to say goodbye.

Life's different now it's just not the same,
I still try to remind myself no ones to blame.

You live in a memory now, a special place in my heart,
and I'll carry that memory close by me,
because there we won't ever have to part.

This poem relates to me.
I just wanted to thank you for writing this poem. I was sleeping over at my best friend's house when her father died of pancreatic cancer- three days after Valentine's Day. I had such an awful February- my house burned down, my brother was in a bad car crash, and I broke my leg in the three weeks before his death. For a while, I couldn't seem to feel happy; I felt like I was alone, like I had nobody who understood how I felt and could help me. Now I see that I'm not alone. You are a beautiful writer- thank you!
It was a very sad poem but it seems that you have happiness written all over it. Awesome Job!
so great.
Hey, im not 14 years of age, but this poem touched me dearly, my father died when I was 6, and I miss him dearly, this poem is beautiful!

Hi, my name is Jessica and i am 13 years old. Your poem has touched me in many ways because I have just lost a loved one. I was in a 4-wheeler accident about a month ago with my boyfriend. I made it out ok but unfortunately my boyfriend didnt. He was killed instantly. He slammed his head into a telephone pole. I always used to blame myself for him not making it, but it was a freak accident that neither I or anyone had control over. At 13 years old i never thought i would go through something like this. After reading your poem I felt like I am not the only person on the Earth that has gone through this. Your poem is so true and relates to my experience very well. It brings tears to my eyes because i enjoy reading it. I just want to tel you that your poem is wonderful and I support you. Thank you for writing this poem because it means the world to me. Thanks again!
This poem is so great. Im 13 and my dad died when he was 27 and I was 6 and my brother was 9. he died from pserosis. he was an alcoholic from a young age and began to drink so much his liver was practically gone. im so sorry for you're loss I know how it is. it made 7 years March 31st. this is a great poem. goodluck in all you do, God Bless, Devan!
