Family Death Poem

This poem is dedicated to my cousin I'm ALWAYS remembering even though she died long ago...

Forced To Say Good-Bye

© Kamronn Keels
I'm forced to say good-bye...
But you don't know how much I want to tell her hi...
All the time she's been gone...
I've missed her all along...

I feel all this pain...
And there's nothing I've gained...
No one's tried to talk to me about her...
And that's why in my heart I feel a little "burr"...

They don't know what I think...
That I see her everytime I blink...
I take this harder than her kids...
Probably because they don't know what death really means...

I hate being forced to say good-bye..
I'd rather switch it to a hi...
Can't believe she's really gone...
And we've missed her all along...

  • I recently lost my 14 year old cousin. She along with two of her friends died in a car accident on their way to school. My aunt was the one driving. Due to the bad weather, they got into an accident with another person. The other two girls were twins and both 14 years old as well.. I miss my little cousin terribly and reading your poem has really hit my heart. So thank you for writing this and sorry for your loss.
