Death of a Friend Poem

This poem is a dedication to RTB and NAB. Two of the greatest people ever brought to this earth. They both died too young, and never had a chance to see what life could bring. Ryan, just 16, died in the car accident that we were in on August 12th, 2007. Weeks later, Nicole, my cousin, only 17, battled cancer. She passed away 13 days after her 18th birthday. Her last wish was to be home for Christmas, and I guess she really was home...RIP. In loving memory..

Since The Loss Of You

© Tiffany
Since the loss of you
I've learned to live for each day
And take it as a blessing
Knowing it may not always be this way.

Since the loss of you
I've learned that when everything goes wrong
To never give up on what is right
Because it can only make you strong.

Since the loss of you
I've learned that even when you're in a lot of pain
You've got to hold yourself together
So you won't feel like you're going insane.

Since the loss of you
I've learned how to hold the tears when I want to cry
Because all I have is memories
And just want to ask God why.

But mostly, since the loss of you
I've learned a life can be taken in the blink of an eye
And only Heaven really knows when
That person will have to say "Goodbye."
