Loss of a Friend Poems
Tribute Poems on the Loss of a Friend
What are some of the feelings that one might feel when a friend passes away? When someone that is special to us is gone it can be difficult to continue living life. Things that were special to you may begin to seem pointless when you don't have that special person to share it with. All of the things that you did together are reminders of the loss that you have suffered. Do yourself a favor and take the time to mourn your loss. As you go through the five stages of grief; denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance, memories of the good times you spent together may bring a smile to your face instead of a painful grimace.

14. Do Not Cry
When I leave this world, please do not cry,
For I have gone up with the spirits in the sky.
Do not place flowers by my side,
For I never got them when I was alive.
I remember the first day we met.
You were all smiles, always happy.
This I must say is the saddest birthday yet
Because I still haven't learned to forget.
I cherished the times when we were together
I hoped that it would last forever
but now there's nothing I can do
today I'll say my goodbye to youFeatured Shared Story

But there in my dreams you once will appearFeatured Shared Story
