Death of a Friend Poem

A friend writes to another friend who has passed on to the other side. Though she has died, she is alive within him and always will be. She is bound up in the circle of life.

Your Love Will Be Passed On

© Joshua J. Urness
You are with me everyday,
I feel you with every breath,
Your thought is with me,
With every decision I make.

You have been with me until now,
And it is hard to face,
That you are finally gone,
And I will never see you again.

Your hands, your touch, your smile,
Are things I will never forget,
All the love you shared with me,
And all the tears and pain you made go away.

In our short time together,
All the memories we had,
Will last in my heart,
Those memories I will never forget.

Although you have left,
Now you walk above,
You are always with me,
I'm always surrounded by your love.

Now you don't have to worry,
For your love will be passed on,
‘Cause even though you left me,
You are Always in my Heart.

  • I had two friends that had recently committed suicide I hadn't known them long but it was long enough. Your poem was the exact thing that I have tried to say but could never find the words.
