I Will Forever Miss You

Published on March 2008

You Always put a smile on my face
no matter how mad I was
all I had to do was call you and you would make everything better.
The day that I heard that you were taken from us my heart broke.
I Dropped down to my knees and cried and cried.
All I wanted was for one more day with you
As I sit here at your grave looking at your picture.
All I want to do is hug you and laugh with you and play basketball with you.
I miss you so much we all do.
and when you died.
The whole town felt the pain.
You were only 16 years old.
You didn't deserve to die.
You wanted to get married and go to college
Have babies and have a family.
You've been gone for a year now and I miss you like hell
I think about you everyday
It's getting easier.
But every time I look at your picture or pull out the scrapbook my eyes start to water.
I will never forget you
Joshua Craig Harris
I love you and miss you,
but I know that your in heaven
looking over all of us..
I can't wait until I get to see you again

In Loving Memory of Joshua Craig Harris
11-21-89 to 6-29-06 forever young

This poem really touch my heart, I lost my best friend on the 10th March 2007. She died in her sleep age 16 years old. We were more like sisters, did everything together and share the same birthday, same school! I remember her funeral, it was very upsetting still am today! She was the one person I could tell secrets too and trust! She's gone but never forgotten in! I miss her hugs and hanging out <3 x

This poem was amazing. I really felt the pain you went through, I suffered basically the same thing, my bestfriend she was just beautiful. Then one day out of nowhere, she hung herself, she wasn't like this, until I found out that she was sexually abused . Just remember if you ever lost someone, to be strong & remember they're in a better place. <3

this poem is very good:) I love it.. on February 18, 2010 my best friend at age 16 years old died :( I knew him since preschool and ever since then we became best friends:) it's been a year and I haven't gotten over his death.. you see he was born with a disease and he couldn't talk or walk he had to be in a wheelchair with the computer that can talk to us.. he always got picked on and I always protected him.. when I found out he died I never talked to anyone, I felt like my heart was torn.. I never knew how much it hurt until he left me, I still think about him and I will never forget him. people are telling me to remember the good things I did with him:) and smile and they said Ryan wants you to be happy not sad! but how can I? how can I be happy? when I think of him all the time... he was tooo young to die.. I don't understand why god would take him away from me. I still don't know why but I hope he's happy:) he always made me smile I just cry everyday

This poem has touched me because I lost a friend in a similar way. Her car got wrapped around a tree side-ways, killing her upon impact. It was raining like hell and she was hydroplaning. The day I found out is the day I was actually going to ask her out, but then I get to school and she was gone. I swore every class I thought I saw her beautiful face but I didn't. I just broke down crying...

This poem really touched me when I read it. My best friend died at the age 13 an it's been 6 years. We were more like sisters we did everything together an I wasn't able to tell her goodbye. Till the day of the funeral. She is gone and I can't call her to get her to make me smile any more. I loved this poem it really touched my heart and I hope that it does the same for someone else that reads it

I was looking for a poem to read at my best friends memorial service. He was hit by a pickup at the age of 13, and died on the scene. We were in the same middle school, and were each others best friend. The whole school cried that day. When I came across this poem, I cried like I cried the night I found out that he died. This poem is perfect.
