Best Friends


Published by Family Friend Poems October 2007 with permission of the Author.

I know you are in a better place,
But I miss looking at your face.
You were so young to die.
Every night I sit and cry,
Wondering why does it have to be this way.
It hurts so much because there's nothing I can do or say
That can make you come back to me.
There is one thing that's plain to see
That one day we will be together again,
But you will always remain my best friend.

On May 5, 2018, I lost my friend because he hung himself. He has left us all in pain, but I read this poem at his funeral and everyone thought this was a great poem to read at his funeral.

My best friend died on 09/23/17. It was the hardest thing I've ever gone through. She killed herself, and I can't help but think that I was to blame. Not even 3 days later, another one of my friends committed suicide. I just felt like all around me bodies were dropping. I felt trapped and didn't know what to do. I haven't been to school since I was first told. I feel hopeless, and I have no idea what to do anymore. I stay up late thinking about my fallen friends. Everyone tells me to mourn and expects me to have grieved and gotten over it. I have no idea how I'm supposed to get over this. I feel like I'm trapped in a box with the key locked inside with me. I'll never forget my friends and all the memories. I love you guys. Rest easy, loves.

Today is my best friend's 24th birthday, and her memorial is the 28th (this Wednesday). Three years ago she took her life and left me. I have been heartbroken ever since. This poem really touched me in so many ways.

I moved to Florida when I was in 7 grade. I had known my best guy friend since I was in 4 grade. I'm in 9 grade now, and I found out that my best friend died on September 26 of 2014. He had been working a lot and trying to keep up in school. He was trying to create a better life for himself. He was exhausted and was taking caffeine pills to keep up with all that he had to do. He overdosed and died from cardiac arrest. It's been tough for me. I feel like I could call him right now but I know I can't and it breaks my heart. I miss him so much and 17 years wasn't enough time for him. Rest In Peace <3

My friend Andy and his girlfriend, Jill were shot and killed today. One of his friends posted a status on his page about it and I looked up something that I could post and remind everyone of him. This is definitely it. I miss Andy so much, he helped me through a lot. I miss you Andy, have fun with your brother, Luke, wherever you go.
