Loss of a Friend Poem

Even Though He's Gone Poem

Dustin was pretty much my brother. I had known him my entire life. I woke up one morning to his grandmother, who is also my neighbor, asking me if I wanted to go to church, but I wasn't feeling good, so I turned down the offer. I went to church with Dustin and his grandmother every Sunday morning, except for this one. I woke up to someone knocking on the door next door, and I walked outside to let them know she went to church. She told me she knew this and that the cops pulled her out of church to give her some bad news about Dustin. Dustin was killed in a car wreck on September 30, 2007. Because I love to write, I decided I would write him a poem the day before his funeral. I had to get up and read it in front of everyone there, and they all loved it. I have people tell me every day that I need to post my poems. I thought about it for a long time then decided I have at least one I want everyone to read.

Watch Over Us


Published by Family Friend Poems September 2008 with permission of the Author.

Even though he's gone
his memory still remains in our hearts.
His smile and face will never fade.
We think of him as we go on each day.
The good times we remember
and the days spent together
will be in our memories forever.
So when you start to get down
and you really want to cry
just think of the fun times
and don't wonder why.
Just leave it at that
and know he's better now.
He's in a better place.
His heart was right with God.
So Dustin, we love you
and we miss you so much,
but we know you're much happier.
So watch over us and make sure we're okay
and we will see you again someday.
