Remembering A Dead Loved One

Why Did You Have To Go So Far Away?

©

Published: November 2007

Remember when the sun shined so bright?
You were here and you love me with all your might.
Now the good Lord has taken you away,
but in my heart you will always stay.
When you died, I didn't think I could go on,
but your love assured me it would be okay and I would have to move on.
There are so many thoughts left unspoken,
wishing I could go back and tell you everything that left me heart broken.
Walking by your casket was too much to bear,
hearing people whisper this girl is too young to care.
I know I was just nine when you died,
but it still haunts me deep down inside.
Sometimes I see you standing there,
and I try to run but you turn into thin air.
Life will never be the same since you're gone,
but one thing you taught me is how to be strong.
If I could speak to you one last time, I would say,
"Why did you have to go so far away?"

My best friend died when I as 9. It still haunts me every night, but I don't let it show. I sometimes think it was my fault he died as we had a massive argument before he died. I never got to say goodbye as I never went to his funeral because it would just have made me more guilty than I already am.

Las year I lost my best friend (Casey) to a car crash. She was 18 and I was 15. She was like my big sister and I miss her every day. I still cry myself to sleep every night because in the same year her brother (my boyfriend at the time) committed suicide due to depression. Two days after Casey died her mother hung herself because she couldn't live without her two children. The father wasn't in the picture. There is only one person left in the family that is alive and that is Casey's twin sister. We both ended up in rehab due to depression. I grew up with the family, and losing them just killed me. Luckily, me and the sister are doing better and are doing a memorial for the family. I understand the pain you went through as me and Casey fought over drugs and drinking that night. She died in a police chase for drunk driving...
