Loss of a Friend Poems - Page 2
You left at such a young age.
We had so much to do in such little time,
But now that you died, my world has collapsed.
The day you slipped from me was the day
I slipped from myself.
Since you've been gone,
Nothing has been the same.
I've been locked down in these chains
Like a hallow tree stuck in the ground
And can never be free.
You left without a sound
And left me there to drown.
My pillow was all warm and wet.
I couldn't believe you left.
Now you're gone forever
While I'm stuck in this world of hate
With a heart full of pain.
I wish everything could change
So I could have you here with me,
Instead of you being so far away
Because this isn't fair
That you left at such a young age.Latest Shared Story

22. Hanging In ToughHaving Faith In God During Tough Times
A fine lady.
So gallantly strong,
She stands for the good,
The righteous, and God.
At a small little church she faithfully arrives.
She walks quietly about as she silently sighs.
She greets with a hug with outstretched hands.
"How are you doing today? Glad to see you," she says.
I gently embrace her and ask, "How are you doing?
You look pretty today."
With a sad glow in her eyes, she says,
"It's been kinda rough,
But our God's on my side,
And I'm hanging in tough."
With a soft smile on her face, she sits in a pew,
Among family and friends and others she knew.
She graciously prays with her head slightly bowed,
Singing God's hymns with a soft whispering sound.
As she rises to leave, I squeeze her arm and say,
"You look so beautiful and much better today."
She speaks with a quick grin as she touches my cheek
And replies with a voice that's suddenly weak.
"It's a little rough, but you know me,
I'm hanging in tough."
She faithfully arrives at the little church
One last time.
She was carried by loved ones
And friends by her side,
A bouquet was placed on the pew
Where she once sat,
With flowers and ribbons and banner that read:
God's taking me home.
His ride won't be rough,
For my days are all over for me.
Hanging in tough.
The way I miss you is different now, I don't think about forever I just don't know how.
I miss your face, your laugh and your smile, It seems like a lifetime, though its just been a while
Its been a year since I heard the news that Oh so terrible day.
I never thought id lose you 'I'm not going anywhere' I'd heard you say.
But you did, your gone... there's no getting you back.
At Least I have my memories..of which I know for sure there is no lack!
I miss you so much, there's still a void in my heart.
I just wish we could have lived our lives not ever having to be apart.
I've given up wishing you'd come back to fill this hole.
You put it there a year ago when your body left your soul.
I know your gone I just wish I'd known.
So that the last time I spoke with you I could have kept you on the phone.
I'd have told you how much I loved you and how forever I'd know your smile.
And how I didn't think I could live without you.. not even for a while.
Although your gone and out of sight your definitely not out of mind.
You've flown away and not through choice you left us all behind.
I hope you know we still think of you and how much you meant to us.
And how you made me feel the way that now your gone...no-one else does.
It's been a year and it's safe to say, I still think about you everyday, I might not hope or even pray I just love and miss you in my own special way ...
(My best friend forever you will always stay.)
Pain Of Losing A Best Friend
Could you imagine a pain so deep down inside
That it can not be summarized in words you simply can write
A pain that touches your toes and up to the top of the ceiling
You can't eat, you can't sleep, that is the pain that I am feeling
But my father raised a boy that can stand on his own
But these different circumstances has got me feeling alone
All the doctors and the nurses say you're dead and you're gone
But it still feels like I could talk to you if I picked up the phone
You can't fix a broken window you just replace the pane.
But there is no pain great enough to replace your face
With my eyes matted shut from the tears that I slept on
I thank God for the pictures and your voice on my cell phone.
But please, while you are awed in the mist of the Lord
Don't forget all your friends and time spent on this world.
I will never have a friend like you ever again.
My heart is a vault now, I'm scared to let people in.
No matter how many oceans or rivers I cry
My heart will never let you go, I'll never say good bye.
A lot of my hours are now spent in the place where you lay
As I sit crying, wondering, who would you be today.Latest Shared Story

25. Goodbye AllenRest In Peace
Everyday I stare at your picture,
the vivid look on your smiling face,
tears fall on that picture,
as I sit there, tears falling on my tear stained cheeks.
you died at such a young age,
why did it have to happen to you,
you were my best friend, my brother,
and I never get to see you again.
it was a horrible accident,
that car taking you away from me,
that feeling in my heart knowing,
just knowing that you were drifting away from me.
When I heard you died,
my heart broke in two,
I couldn't breathe,
my body was shutting down.
That day I saw you,
your body was cold, your face white,
as white as a ghost.
I held back on the tears, till the ceremony began.
When I went to that podium with your fiancée,
the tears were in her eyes as I held her hand,
tears falling fast on my cheeks,
faster than a waterfall in the forests.
I sat down when she was done,
I couldn't say anything,
I buried my face in my hands and sobbed,
the last words in my heart said, "goodbye Allen"Latest Shared Story
Omg this really really touched me... I kind of know how you feel my cousin who has lived with me for years had died from a car crash while he was texting me because as a regular student who...
A Blue Jay landed on my fence post today
such a beautiful sight in a world of gray
I couldn't pull my eyes away, and then I thought of you
and all of the love and all of the things
that you never knew
Then I thought of me and all the things I can never change
my heart fell into pieces
my tears fell down like rain
I never said I love you, I can't erase that from my mind
I would tell you that again and again
if I could see you one more time
I'm sorry for any pain I caused and for my selfishness
But now you're gone and it's too late to say these words I guess
I felt a breeze and at that time the Blue Jay flew away
I heard a whisper in the wind, "don't worry, everything will be ok"Latest Shared Story
This was actually my mom's poem(:
She (Cindy) and her husband, Jeff passed away in a vehicular homicide last Saturday night...
I found the paper she had printed this out on and looked...
I know I haven't visited you
Since the day you were buried
And I just want to say I'm sorry.
But I just still can't believe you're gone,
And it's getting more real each day.
The crash seems like yesterday.
Although I know it's been quiet some time.
It's almost your birthday.
Don't worry, I haven't forgotten.
I already got you a gift but
it's just something small.
I'm going to visit you and unwrap it by your side.
Then scrap up some dirt, and place it in the earth.
Next to it I'll place a picture,
Of us and the team at the pool.
And when you see them,
I hope you know that I still miss you.
And not a single day goes by that I don't wish you were here.
I pray every night I could see you one last time
I look in the clouds as if for a sign
I got to sleep crying, I wish you were here
But there in my dreams you once will appear
That beautiful smile I see on your face
Assures my heart your in a better place
I knew you were special but not just to me
How so many people loved you was clearly to see
The day you were taken my heart was so broken
I knew there were words I should have not left unspoken
I miss you so much but I know you understand
I cant wait for the day I get to hold your hand
As we walk down the road that is paved with gold
We will hear all the stories we were once told
And there we will see Him. so beautiful and strong
And we will know this is where we finally belong
So soon I will be there and I know you will wait
As you take my arm through the pearly gates
But till then I will keep my head high and know it will be OK
Until we can be together again one dayLatest Shared Story

Death Of Friend
When you were here, you made me smile
When you were here, I could run a mile
When you were here, I didn't have to cry
When you were here, bad things went flying by
When you were here, I never felt alone
When you were here, I was as sweet as an ice cream cone
When you were here, I felt no fear
That is...when you were here
31. I Miss You
If I had knew then, what I know now
I would've spent more time with you
Things go by so fast
and I wish I could back and change the past.
Even with the days that have gone by
I think of you still, and often cry.
People say time makes the hurt go away
But I think of you, each and every day.
Sure I miss all the things we used to do
My best friend for life you will always be.
Every night and day about you I pray.
To see you smile at me again someday
Now the place you're going, I may not get to go
But I'll keep on trying, and I wanted you to know
Now there's one more thing, I wish I could do
I wish I could tell you how much I miss you.
Friend Suicide Poem
Seeing your body as white as snow,
One look at your coffin and we already know.
You didn't have to do it,
You didn't have to die.
You could have told us,
We could have helped you.
Now we all only have One question,
You gave us no warning,
Not even a delay.
Not even enough time to say,
33. My DespairPoem About Loss Of Friend To Cancer
Since you've been gone
You needed me then
I need you now
Have to move on
But not sure how
Still hear your voice
And see your smile
I guess it's okay
You're cancer-free now

I was so sad when my best friend Jade died of cancer. We were twins because we were born on the same day. There's not a day where I don't remember you.
34. Use To BeKidney Failure
We use to be so happy
We use to be inseparable
we use to be the best of friends
until the day It came to an end.
I sit and wonder
from day to day
what you would look like
If you were here today.
I sit here and look back
at the times we shared
you were so young
you didn't have a care.
You knew that you were dying
but didn't say a word
I wish that I could of been with you
when you said your final goodbye.
It broke my heart to lose you
my heart still aches with pain
for you didn't go alone that day
for part of me went with you
when God called you home that day.Latest Shared Story
Today, I found out my best friend had died. She too, had suffered from kidney failure. I love this poem, because it describes exactly what I feel. It is too the point. I hope the writer...
When I heard that you had left us
I was simply blown away
How could that be possible?
We were laughing yesterday.
Your dry wit and your humor
Your 'grin' and devilish smile
No one knew what you'd do next
You had one unique style!
Oh how I'd anticipate you
Clocking "in" on second shift
How I waited for your quips
You had a truly special gift.
Always there for everyone
So dependable, sincere
Kind, gentle and caring
Felt good to have you near.
So, my dear departed friend
I'll think of you each day
Peace and rest and comfort
I hope you've found today.
Your last words to me
Will help my tears to dry
You punched my arm and said,
"Hey...see ya, love ya, bye!"Latest Shared Story
This reminds of my best friend who attempted suicide last week.
36. A Poem For YouFor A Murdered Friend
Everyday I wake up
Realizing that you are gone
Reality keeps forcing me
To accept that you are done
Finished with all the chaos
This earthly world can bring
Through with all the pain and problems
And all those simple things
Am I so selfish to wish that you
Were here alive on earth?
Am I wrong to wish you back
Just so I won't hurt?
All the things I never said
Strong feelings I never shared
I took your love for granted and put you off
Because I just knew you would always be there
I pushed you away because I needed space
To be young, live the college life, and grow
But I was gonna get back right with you
But now you'll never know
You left behind family and friends
Lovers and colleagues the same
I still can't believe those boys that day
It must've had your name
But now you're gone
They took your life
I'm sure for no worthy cause
Am I wrong for hoping
They can't sleep at night
For motivating this unjust loss?
But it is me who lies awake
At night thinking about you
What ifs and why nots run through my mind
Sometimes I hate that I fell in love with you
No matter how hard I cry or pray
I know you're not coming back to me
I'll never forget the around-the-face kisses
Your love for me ran deep
I thank God everyday for granting me
Your presence on Saturday before you died
I hadn't seen you in months
And there you were, that day, to my surprise
I can only wait until the day
That we'll meet again
I know that you will still be you
Funny, crazy, a friend
You were never perfect
You weren't an angel by far
But damn boy you were you
And even before you died
I knew I would never be able
To replace you
Your smile, your eyes
Your laughter, your words
Are embedded in my mind
And forever you'll live in my heart and dreams
Until the end of my lifeLatest Shared Story

37. It's Over NowYour Sudden Death
It's Over Now
We had some problems
love was tough
we got in a fight
and I said I had enough
You got mad and left
With whiskey on your breath
You hit someone head on
That's what lead to your sorrowful death
Everyone was at your funeral
wearing everything in black
I looked at your funeral in fault
walking off never looking back
Ever since you died that day
all I could do was meth
I still regret that argument
that brought you to your sudden death.Latest Shared Story
My cousin was an alcoholic so I know what is like to be around somebody that drank and didn't care about his life. He was always getting into fights and he always ended up in jail for a night...
From toddlers to teens, it happens so fast.
All parents can do is remember the past.
Holding hands with mom and dad, at ages five, six, seven.
Then off they go finding friends at eleven.
At twelve they are time bombs, sometimes sweet, sometimes mean.
Then along comes the dreaded ever so exciting thirteen.
Fourteen and fifteen, those adolescent years.
Bringing such happiness and also some tears.
Beautiful, emotional girls and risky, frisky boys.
Not old enough to drive, but too old for toys.
We try to get them to appreciate time, make it precious and last.
But all our teens want to do is grow up just a little too fast.
Sixteen and seventeen, off they go behind the wheel of a car.
We struggle to cut the ties to give them the freedom to venture off that far.
Eighteen and nineteen, fighting the pain of first loves.
Going off to college, leaving home, or getting their first jobs.
Now they are turning into young adults, our dear teens.
Living out their new ideas, their goals and their dreams.
With twenty around the corner we see them maturing, becoming wiser even a bit bolder.
We want them to be safe, we want them to be happy but we especially want to see them another year older.Latest Shared Story
since I was a child till I reached my adolescence this story helped me to overview my life........
its a fabulous creation
keep up the good work
I can't sleep, I want to wake up
Life has become unreal
I forget how to feel
Day after day, going through the motions
Living with the pain
There's a hole in my heart
No spark in my brain
My soul is grey
My thoughts are black
The world is plain
Even the sun can't rid the shadows
The shadows you left, all around my home
Filling up my heart
This is the price I pay since it turned out till death do us part.
He is a friend to remember,
A friend I miss so much.
I think about all the laughter
And even the times we'd touch.
I know you know the score now
As you look down from above.
You see me full of sorrow
'Cause so much of you I love.
I wish I had the chance,
But you decided you had to go.
That night you asked me for that dance
I should have told you so.
But as every day has passed,
I can almost feel you near.
I just always thought you'd forever last
But now it's you I cannot hear.
Just one thing I should have said
While you were still down here,
But you stepped inside that bloody shed,
Though I will always hold you near.
I know to heaven you have been led.
You're my angel up above,
But just one thing I should have said.
It was you I always LOVED.
