Death of a Friend Poem

Its hard to believe that one you were so close with is now forever gone until the day that you will be reunited in spirit. A poem about the death of a friend.

Best Friends

© Tsambika Angelidakis
I know you are in a better place
But I miss looking at your face
You were so young to die
Every night I sit and cry
Wondering why does it have to be this way
It hurts so much because there’s nothing I can do or say
That can make you come back to me
There is one thing that’s plain to see
That one day we will be together again
And now until then you will always remain my best friend

  • My friend Andy and his girlfriend, Jill were shot and killed today. One of his friends posted a status on his page about it and I looked up something that I could post and remind everyone of him.
