Death Poem by Teens

Mother

I am 14, I lost my mother 4 months before my birthday when I was 12 going on 13. It has been about a year and a half since she died. I'm just now starting to realize and feel more of the pain. Before I just didn't want to believe. I was in denial and I'm just now getting out of that stage.

I Miss You

In the blink of an eye
I didn't know
That I would have to say goodbye
At night a tear rolls down my cheek

One day I will go back to that place
Where I last saw your face
And say that I miss you

Megan,
Thank you so much for writing such a beautiful poem. I know you probably can't stand when people say this and trust me I know but I truly understand your pain. I lost my mom in 2005 from a horse riding accident she passed away a month before my 14th birthday. She was a single mom and my best friend. I am now 20 and I wish I could tell you the pain goes away or the days get easier but they don't it gets harder. It's been 6 years and I still feel like I'm dreaming. I find strength in the fact that I was at least able to have such a incredible mom for the time I had because some people never have moms. I can say I wish I would have talked to people more when it happened instead of keeping it inside and pretending I was fine because now it's been so long I almost forget how to feel at all. Anyways keep strong sweetie and always know your moms watching over you!

Ariana

I can relate so much to your story. I'm also fourteen and I lost my mom a year and half ago when I was 12 almost 13. I still haven't come to terms with her death nor do I want to she was the one constant in my life when everything else was changing. And she was always there to listen to me or give me advice or just hug me. So my heart goes out to you because I know exactly what you're going through.

This touched me because I know what she is going through. I lost my dad when I was only 3 years old and I still him very much. This day was the day he died: December 30.

This poem touched me as well, I had some people in my childhood that I never got to know that well. I also lost my grandmother. She was the closest person I had in my life. I was not able to go to the funeral, which crushed my heart even more. The last time I saw her was in the hospital, I thought she would be ok. Turns out she died and I never got to say goodbye...

This poem touched me because I had a similar experience with my grandmother I lost her and she was the only person I felt I could talk to. Now it is so hard to know that my grandmother is gone and I didn't even get to say goodbye..
