Loss of a Friend Poem

Okay. Dustin was pretty much my brother. I have known him my entire life. I woke up one morning to his grandmother, which was 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 walked outside to let them know that 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. Turns out Dustin was killed in a car wreck on September 30 of 2007. So the day before his funeral, because I absolutely love to right, I decided I would write him a poem. 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: September 2008

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.
