About the Poem

The pain of loosing someone can easily come at a young age

Goodbye

As I walked into the high school,
People were watching us.
But I didn't notice now.

I walked over to you,
I touched your sweet face.
I tried not to cry, but the tears
they were always there.

I tasted the tears of anger and sorrowness,
I tried to tell myself it was all a bad dream -
But then I realized that dreams
aren't supposed to hurt you.

As I leaned over,
I whispered into your ear,
I love you.

Then I put the flowers on the casket,
And I quietly walked out saying,
Goodbye.

This poem remined me of my b/f funeral. I told myself that it was not real even when I was looking at him in his casket I didn't belive he was gone. He passed away 2 days after my b-d,and 3 before his. He has been gone for all most 7 months and I still think I'm going to run in to him some where,but I know he is still with me in my thoughts,my dreams,and my heart. Keep your head held high and keep their memory alive no matter what.
mary
this poem is awesome. i cried when i read it. only because it made me think of when i lost my best friend to suicid last year. death is hard. even harder when ur right there when he did it. this poem brings out all the feelings i have never said or even knew i felt. keep on writing cuz this poem is off the hook!

When my mother died of breast cancer, I was only in fifth grade. I love your poem because it described how I felt. I could totally relate to it. And when I read your last two stanzas. I started to cry because that's exactly what I did at her funeral. Great job Jessica! Keep writing :-)

very good, I'm sorry for your loss! I lost someone at a young age and it all came back when I read your poem, it helps not to forget but to remember. This will always help you to remember. Your lucky you can express yourself. You'll help others remember aswell. Good job!
Sarah
I'll get right to it. This poem made me cry. It expresses simply the feeling of losing someone. I lost my uncle when I was 14, I am now 16. It feels like just yesterday.. I love this style, and the emotions it invoked. Thank you for your work
Meghan
A friend of mine died yesterday and I'm not sure how I'm really going to cope. Another friend of mine died in October of '99. After I read this poem, I realized that this author touched upon a subject very rarely touched upon. I want to thank her for letting out some of the feelings I am experiancing. I read this poem over and over again, waiting for the tears to fall. They poured out of my eyes. I just want to tell this girl, thank you, thank you so much for writing this touching piece.
RYAN
