Loss of a Friend Poem

This poem is a dedication to RTB and NAB...two of the greatest people ever brought to this Earth. They both died too young and never had a chance to see what life could bring. Ryan, just 16, died in the car accident we were in on August 12, 2007. Weeks later, Nicole, my cousin, only 17, battled cancer. She passed away 13 days after her 18th birthday. Her last wish was to be home for Christmas, and I guess she really was home...RIP. In loving memory...

Since The Loss Of You


Published: July 2008

Since the loss of you,
I've learned to live for each day
And take it as a blessing,
Knowing it may not always be this way.

Since the loss of you,
I've learned that when everything goes wrong
To never give up on what is right
Because it can only make you strong.

Since the loss of you,
I've learned that even when you're in a lot of pain
You've got to hold yourself together
So you won't feel like you're going insane.

Since the loss of you,
I've learned how to hold the tears when I want to cry
Because all I have is memories
And just want to ask God why.

But mostly, since the loss of you,
I've learned a life can be taken in the blink of an eye
And only Heaven really knows when
That person will have to say "Goodbye."

My cousin/best friend was killed three days ago. It was her first prom and she was only 15. On her way back from prom heading to an after-party, she was killed in a car accident. There were three more girls in the car. My cousin and another girl died. The other two are still fighting for their lives. Mikayla is my cousin and Daisia is the other girl that died. Ziyah and Jada are the ones fighting for their lives. Mikayla always had a smile on her face, and the only time you saw a frown was when she was about to beat someone up. She taught me that no one should ruin my day and that if they do, just tell her and she'd handle it. She always kept a smile on my face and the faces of others. It's unbelievable that she is in heaven watching me. I still am in shock from what happened, and I refuse to believe it. This poem touches my heart. It explains exactly what I am going through since she has left this crazy world. I love you Mikayla. You are my everything. #LongLiveKayla
