Loss of a Friend Poem

Friend Died Before Graduation Poem

This poem is dedicated to my friend Alex who died just two months before he finished his senior year. His smile, laugh, and just himself has been sorely missed.

I'm sorry for your loss. I've lost someone the same way. His name was Dominic. I miss him. All of us do. I wish he never left, and the bad thing is we weren't on good standing before he left.

Flashing lights red white and blue
All those people you once knew
People crowd around the car
The twisted metal is badly charred
The beeping stops and all go quiet
Not a breath comes from among the riot
An anguished medic shouts clear
Think of the people who hold you dear
No pulse, no beat, a silent scream
No one to wake from this horrid dream
A life so great is now lost
The price came at a deadly cost
The change you made in my life
Tearing at me like a knife
I hear your laughter and your voice
I remember your smile like I have no choice
You are my hero day and night
No everything is not going to be all right
I will never forget what you did
You were even the greatest kid
I miss you more and more every day
I always will come not matter what may come
I never really got the chance to say it.....
I love you Alex with all my soul
You left me with a great and gaping hole

On October 2, 2015, a very close friend died in a car accident. Very sudden, and not a day goes by where I don't think of him. It's only been a year. Love you, Riley?

My best friend just died may 15 2011, two weeks before we graduated. She was beautiful and so nice. I was just wondering, does it ever get easier because I'm not sure I can keep going with this pain

I lost my good friend, Divan, to a bad car crash. I hope I will see him when I walk the stairs to heave. I miss him. He died on 5/4/11.
