About the Poem
This poem is about a friend of mine who died at the age of 20. Everyone knows that death isn't fair. We don't know how much we love the person until the person we love dies. We always move on, but we'll never be completely over it.
We All Know
|by Keri Olson
|We all know you're gone
and gone is forever.
I sometimes think I hear and see you,
then I think its not true
and it breaks my heart in two -
two pieces that slowly mend together,
month after month.
Memories are painful and also wonderful.
Why God wanted you now is something no one knows,
why you took his hand and left us all behind.
What we will always know and always show
is that you are a wonderful friend!
