Family Death Poem

Death Of Nan And Granddad

from birth I was brought up by my Nan and Granddad, I looked upon them with great respect as a father and mother to me.

I lost them within two years apart when I was 14 years then one at 16 years old.

I am now 30, married with two children to occupy my mind but there is never a week that goes by without sharing a thought for them.

RIP Les and Marion

You Will See Them Someday


Published: October 2008

when you lose someone it can be hard to take
the pain that you feel when your heart has to break
the memories you keep are all in your mind
as you search your soul for more to find
the way their skin felt the smell of their hair
as you keep thinking over and shedding a tear
the years may pass, memories fade to grey
but you're getting no younger you'll see them someday
unconditional love is never forgotten
look deep in your heart it is there at the bottom
alone in the dark sometimes in fear
voices from loved ones you're hoping to hear
more years pass, they soon fly by
but you're always looked upon from those in the sky
surrounded by clouds and pure white doves
they listen and watch sending you love
just remember one thing as you sit and you pray
they will be there to greet you, you will see them someday.

Hello, I'm 12 years old. About 5 months ago the 25th will be exactly 5 months but I lost a friend and I'm in 6th grade this girl was in 8th. Her name was Harly McNeely. At my school we have this thing called office helper and you sit in the office and do what the people need you to do. I was an office helper for one quarter of the school year and it was almost time to end that quarter but one guy came in my school to get his step daughter out of class early and it was 2:00, so I went and got the girl out of class which was Harly later that day (it was Friday) one of my friends ask me if I knew Harly so I was like yeah and they said she died and I thought they were kidding but they weren't and at first I didn't realize it but she was in a car wreck on hwy 29 but she passed away at 2:55 & for so long I kept thinking It was Friday at 2:55 how did she die when we weren't even out of school but then it hit me I got her out of class that day and I just felt like it was my fault she had been in that wreck, if I had been a minute later or earlier she might still be here today. I did and still do feel terrible. I cry almost every 25th but I also write poems and I wrote one for her but on my Facebook page I have a page set up for Harly.

Hello, I'm only 12 years and my nan died about 4years ago. I was really close to my nan, but I was to young to know what it would be like to have her gone forever, but now that I'm 12 I have felt the heart break of how a death can hurt someone so much.
This past year she has been in my head all the time I have been going over the times that we have had together and now I wish she lived for longer, a lot longer.
It shows how much I need her back, beacause I have been cutting myself and wishing I was dead, but my mates keep on telling me "dont cry, dont kill your self, your nan is up in the heavens watching you" but I just want to see her again, but now I know what die and death means I can't have her back.
I love you nan, please dont forget thaat (l) xxxx,
