Death Poem by Teens

10 Year old Girl Losses Her Mother

My name's Rachel, and I'm fifteen years old at the current moment.
My parents split when I was five.
Five years later, I lost my mother on April 15, 2004.
As a ten year old, loosing a parent does a lot to mature you.
When you grow up in a place you've never been, let alone even heard of,
you'd be amazed how much one can grow.
But I'd give up this new 'maturity' for just another minute with my mom.

Rest in Peace, Mommy.

Never Forget You


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2011 with permission of the author.

I miss you mom, more then you could know.
All the years without you have been like a blow.
I see other people, who don't know what they've got,
I feel like hitting them, more often then not.

It's been five years since then,
And I can still remember when,
You smiled and when you cried,
Sometimes, it's as if you never died.

Every time I think of you, I feel like crying,
I swear, it's as if a part of me is still dying.
You were the greatest mom ever,
And I thought you would be there forever.

But God took you away,
Leaving me here to stay.
I wish that you were here,
Just so that we could be near.

I'll never forget the time I had with you,
Even if that time is now through.
I wish it wasn't, with all my heart,
But there's nothing I can do; no way I can play that part.

No one will ever be able to replace you,
No matter how much they try.
You'll always be my mother,
Until the day I die.

I lost my mom 12 years ago. I was only 10 I'm 22 now n I don't think I have gotten over her passing. Every year its something, something she should have been here to experience with me. Some days are easy and some are rather hard. I wish I could write the way you do just so I could let go of all the anger and resentment I carry.

You are an amazing poet I must admit. I am 15 years old and write myself and I too have lost my mother. 11 years ago. So, I understand what you are going through and understand that no matter what people say you are an amazing person and an amazing poet and you are blessed with everything.

I'm 22 years old now. My mom passed away 8 years ago while I was 14 year old. She was involved in a car accident and she died same time. I haven't get chance to say bye to her. She was a wonderful caring mother I ever had in my life. I miss her so much and everyday I'm always thinking about her. Everynight I dream about her as if she came back but when I wake up I realize that its just a dream. I cry a lot when I remember her. I still have a father but now he marry another wife. I love him and I respect him as well. With my mother's funeral I lean's a lot of things in my life.

Your story it was so touching and lovely. Sorry about your lost too. God bless you as he bless me!

I lost my mum 34 years ago when I was just 5 and I wouldn't wish my fate on my worst enemy. So when I find out that my sister has tried to take her own life I can't believe she would do that to her daughter knowing what we went through. Your poem really touched me; made me cry, I hope it will strike a chord with her.

It's as if a conversation stopped mid way through. One minute I was chatting to my Mum about all the things we always talked about, normal stuff, funny stuff, profound stuff - then the celestial phone hung up and we never spoke again.

I am so sorry for your loss. I'm a terrible writer and was trying to write down my feelings...when I stumbled across your poem, I realized you had written them for me! I am 22 years old, and when I was 19 my mother passed away. She was 52 years old and had smoked since she was 13! She DID quit smoking, but just a couple months before she passed away. It's been 3 years and my heart hurts like it was yesterday. You just learn to cope with it, but the pain remains...there really is no one to talk to about it that can truly understand unless they've actually been in our shoes. Keep being strong!

My name is bona and my mother died 17 years ago when I was in my first year grade, I'm just 7 1/2 years old at that time. This poem can realize how I miss my mother. Without her for a long time it's a big loss in my life. I'm trying to be strong, to move on and to work on my own just to provide the need of my family. I love my father that's why I need to be strong on my daily life. I'm struggling my future but I don't where is the right way to hard that you only decide for your self as a moment...but that is the reality for the upcoming years of my life....

My name is Kayla, and I am 16 years old. My freshman year of high school, my mom was diagnosed with cancer. It was already 4th stage and there was nothing they could do. It broke our hearts because we have not dealt with anything like this before. A year later, as I held my mothers hand and told her it was okay, she passed. Hardest thing anyone could do, is tell their mother it's okay to leave. When you lose a parent like that, you grow up very fast and almost no one else can tell you how you feel unless they have gone through the exact thing!

I am 18 years old, and lost my mom after a very brief illness at 14. She was only 51. I miss her so much. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her. This poem perfectly describes my feelings, even after 3 and half years.

My dear, I am sorry for your loss. I lost my mother 5 years ago. I was depressed and very sick as a result, but I want to encourage you to move on, if you believe in God, use Him as a crutch, He will enable you to go through this. Staying in grief is not good for your body and mind. Just pray to God go help you leave things behind.
I will pray for you

I just read your poem today. I'm so sorry for your lost at such a young age.

Today marks the death of my mom four year ago today. Seems like yesterday. I cried when I read your poem. I wish you had more time to spend with your mom; I had 39 years.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful poem.
