STOP Teen Suicide Poem

Poem About Suicide of Cousin

I'm Heather, I'm twelve years old and lost my cousin to suicide February 25 2010. She was fifteen and my favorite cousin. I wrote this poem to express myself because I miss her, I miss her a lot and I figure a lot of you can relate to losing someone.

This made me cry!! No lie. It makes me think about what my cousin would go through. I don't want that for her.

Everyday I shed a tear
just knowing you're not here
I can't believe you left
I can't forgive for this theft

Everyone thinks I'm to young to understand
but I all I want is to again hold your hand
the memories in my head will start to fade
so I start to become afraid,
I will not see you for awhile
and now I can no longer smile

I look at your picture and start to cry
because I never got to say goodbye

I'm 15 and my favorite cousin is 12. I was really thinking of her as I read this. I can feel how much pain this caused you. It made me cry. Very, very good poem.
