Death Poems by Teens

Death Poems by Teens

Death, grief, and anguish all go hand in hand. But death brings with it many questions as well. Why do we die? Is this life all we get? What is the purpose? Why do good people sometimes die young? What happens after death? Do dead people watch over their loved ones from heaven? Sometimes not having those answers can deprive us of much needed comfort and solace. One way to find comfort after the death of a loved one is to remember fondly all of the good times you spent with them. Expressing your feelings to a good friend or family member can help too.

  1. 1. Goodbye, Grandfather

    After 5 years of not seeing him, I went on holiday to Europe for a visit. I spent the next 3 months travelling daily to and from his hospital bed. At 12 years old, I helplessly watched my grandfather die of cancer.

    You never know the extent of a word
    Until you use it
    You never know the impact of a word
    Until you abuse it

    You never know what could or couldn't have been
    Until you lose it
    You'll never live through the good times in between
    Because you lost it

    Please, when you say goodbye
    Make it count for what it's worth
    Put some value on the word
    It may be the last one ever heard

    What I wouldn't give to see his face
    Just one last time
    He's lying in a better place
    So I'll just smile and say it's fine

    We never got to share a dance
    Or celebrate together
    If only we had one last chance
    I'd make it last forever

    I would show him how good I've done
    And how much better I still can do
    I'd show him how much he meant to me
    And how much I loved him too

    I'd thank him for always being there
    And sending me all his love
    I want to feel him one more time
    Give him one last hug

    He was the strongest male figure
    I ever came across
    He wore a smile even though
    He knew how much he lost

    The word goodbye left my lips
    So quickly and so hollow
    If only I knew it was forever
    I'd tell him only until tomorrow

    I'd make sure he kept fighting
    Even though he was tired and weak
    I'd be there to stop him crying
    Whilst sleeping, I'd kiss him on the cheek.

    And if it was his last 10 breaths
    That he would only ever get
    I'd take his hand and tell him
    That him I would never forget

    Followed by that little word
    That makes him know it's time
    That little word that makes me cry
    I'd tell him, Goodbye Grandfather

  3. 2. My Best Friend Died

    • By Alice Edwards
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2015

    My best friend died on my first day of school my sophomore year. It was very traumatic for me and my classmates. Our parents didn't seem to understand. I wrote this poem to help process the emotions I felt when my friend was torn from me so suddenly.

    My best friend has gone away.
    No more will we laugh and play,
    No more games and whispered secrets shared.
    No more comfort knowing she cared.

    My best friend is dead and gone,
    Never again to tag along
    With me to the park or mall
    Or have a sleepover or do anything at all.

    I wish that I could have said goodbye,
    Told her I would miss her; somehow I must try.
    I have so much left to say.
    I know! I will write my goodbye and send it her way.

    In a note written down, then sent by fire and flame,
    In a bottle on the sea, or a gift by her grave,
    Or perhaps I will whisper it, and send it on a prayer
    And imagine her reading it and knowing I care.

    My best friend has died, nothing that can change.
    But at least now I have said goodbye.
    Farewell, dear friend; I will hold your memory in my heart
    So as long as I live, we are never truly apart.

    This poem is for my best friend, Andrew, who passed away on November 27, 2012 (on my birthday), of a disease that no one knew he had. I love you, Andrew Michael Salas.

    If I had just one more day...
    I'd tell you I loved you.
    I'd tell you I need you.
    I'd tell you that you were the best thing that ever happened to me.

    If I had just one more day...
    I'd give you that one last hug.
    I'd give you a kiss goodbye.
    I'd give you my world.

    If I had just one more day...
    I'd show you how much I really loved you.
    I'd show you why I loved you.
    I'd show you why I NEED you.

    If I had just one more day,
    it would be okay for you to go away.

    My life is so lost without you here.
    Please come back, for just one more day...

  6. 4. She Paints A Pretty Picture

    • By Elise Corsmeier
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2013

    Hello there! This poem is about my friend who committed suicide this past year. She struggled with anorexia, anxiety, and depression.

    She paints a pretty picture
    But all of the ink has run red.
    This picture is of a bloody battle
    That is going on inside her head.

    She paints a pretty picture
    Of a girl in a dress and heels.
    The mirror shows a skeleton,
    But still she skips another meal.

    She paints a pretty picture,
    But nobody has seen it yet.
    It is of a shiny razor
    That makes her sleeves red and wet.

    She paints a pretty picture
    Of an angel in the sky
    That didn't see the point of life
    And now they all whisper "suicide."

    Now I paint a pretty picture.
    It's all in black and white.
    Our memories and childhood dreams
    Still I wonder why she took her life.

  7. 5. Mum's Poem

    • By Shannon
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2011

    R.I.P. Mum! I love you loads, and I'll never forget you. When I was 6, my mum died, and I never really got over it. I feel that writing this poem has helped me express how I feel about it all.

    I love you so much
    Your soft, loving, gentle touch
    You meant the world to me
    Now if only the world could see
    You weren't just my Mum
    You were my best friend, a bundle of fun

    I wish people could see
    The way you left me
    Maybe then they would understand
    Instead it's like I am on my own separate land
    You were my mum and my sun
    But most of all you were number one

    The moon sends a chill down my spine
    Like a light-weight on one glass of wine
    Mum, I love you a lot
    You will never be forgot
    You touched many hearts in your time
    It's helping me write this rhyme

    You were so special to us
    Always making a fuss
    I will never forget you
    Hope you don't forget me too
    Friends and family are all I got
    But I consider that a lot

    You're waiting for me and in that time
    I will keep writing you a different rhyme
    Love you, Mum, trying to make you proud
    While you sit on your white cloud
    I am glad to have had a Mum like you
    Because every time I hear your name I wanna shout Woo!

    But instead I come close to crying
    So I start lying
    My friends ask if I am okay
    But how can I explain I hate May
    I love you more than words can describe
    When I see your picture, I get this vibe

    You're still with me, step by step
    It's like you don't care about my bad rep
    I have changed to make you proud
    After all, I got to keep your white cloud
    You're always in my thoughts during the day
    Especially when it gets to May

    I love you, Mum, I really do
    And I know that no matter what you love me too
    I am proud to say you're my Mum
    My best friend, my bundle of fun
    No matter what, I am your little girl
    And you are my mother pearl

    I was blessed with the greatest Mum
    My best friend always up for some fun
    My friends do not understand what I miss
    I miss our hugs and your motherly kiss
    You are my sun shining so bright
    You are the stars that light up my night

    I love you Mum
    no matter, what you will always be in my thoughts
    and I will make you proud
    I promise

  8. 6. I Love You

    • By Sha''Quille Otto
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2012

    I wrote this poem for my Aunt Charlie Jones because she was the absolute funniest person in our family and always made everybody in our family happy even when they were down. So Auntie, I love you and wanted people to know about how great of a person you were. R.I.P. Charlie Jones
    We miss you and are always thinking about you. If you see God up there, tell him I'm on my way.

    Poem About Death Of Aunt

    Your past was no fairy tale
    I thank you for coming through
    That's why I made
    A special poem for you
    I put you through many struggles
    But to you, I'm blessed
    I didn't have anything I wanted
    But you always did your best
    You worked long hours
    To make ends meet
    You put food on the table
    And shoes on my feet
    To others you don't know
    You may not be a star
    But as long as I know
    That's exactly what you are
    You may not be physically strong
    But you're the strongest woman I know
    Because when it comes to love and care
    That's when you let your strengths show,
    Although it may not seem like it
    I truly do,
    That's why I'm taking the time to say
    Auntie, I love you!

  9. 7. Illusion

    • By Claire Matthew
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2012

    I wrote this poem for my mother whom recently died this year (2012). Most nights I would wake up and think she was still here but realized then and there that she wasn't. R.I.P MUM!

    Death Of Mother

    When this is over
    I will finally get to say
    How much you really mean to me
    And why you should stay

    We will laugh like old times
    It will be just you and me
    Joke about old memories
    And what we used to see

    You will say good night and kiss me
    On my little cheek
    You will hold me tight and whisper
    "You are my little sweet"

    When I finally wake
    From my little nightmare
    I will look around and realize
    You were never even there

    It was all an illusion
    You are still in your grave
    That woman will always be in my heart
    The one who told me to be brave!

  10. 8. You Said

    I wrote this after the loss of my grandmother. She suffered many years with cancer until it finally took her away.

    You said you would always be here for me
    But you left as soon as God came calling
    You said you would be there the day I graduate
    And that I would hear you scream my name as I went by
    But you left before I could say otherwise
    And I looked down into a full but empty crowd
    Lost to the world wishing you were here

    You said that you would look down upon me
    Cast the rays of the sun onto all my dreams
    But I haven't felt them yet
    I linger in the darkness with tears still unwept
    You said that I would be able to hear you whisper in the wind
    I feel the breeze and watch the ruffled leaves play
    But I have yet to hear what you have to say

    You told me so many things to help get over the loss of you
    But nothing is working, I long to have you by my side
    To cuddle in your arms and hide
    I long to hear you laugh again
    And to see that smile spread across your face
    Remembering past times; that's my favorite place

    I don't see why He needed you
    Others have fought it, made it, those that gave up made it too
    Since you're up there, you tell me why he needed you
    And you tell me why everything you said would happen isn't true
    I just want to know, so the next time I'm crying on the floor
    I can stop looking up angry, repeating what you said you swore

  11. 9. If I Could Change The Past

    I had a best friend, Addi, and she was really struggling. Me being her best friend, I told her I would always be there for her. It got to the point where she just couldn't handle life, so she felt the need to kill herself. I miss her so much, so I wrote her a poem.

    For My Best Friend Who Killed Herself

    I don't know what I've done wrong
    They all keep telling me to be strong
    But my heart will long
    So I wrote this song

    If I could go back and change the past
    Without you I don't know how I'll last
    I'm tired of going down the wrong path
    Without you I feel like an outcast

    We had a lot of good times
    I thought that you'd always be mine
    Life without you is not fine
    You always knew how to shine.

    If I could go back and change the past
    Without you I don't know how I'll last
    I'm tired of going down the wrong path
    Without you I feel like and outcast

    I'm not ready to say goodbye
    They all tell me that I need to try
    But I would rather cry
    My life just feels like a lie

    If I could go back and change the past
    Without you I don't know how I'll last
    I'm tired of going down the wrong path
    Without you I feel like an outcast

    I will always cry for you
    'Cause I don't want to say goodbye to you

  12. 10. I Will Never Stop Missing You

    • By Tiani Johnson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2011

    Loss, for me is the hardest thing to deal with. Worse than any physical or emotional pain, because eventually you can heal. Loss is something you can never get back. Last summer I lost my 12 year old cousin in a horrible car accident. Since then I have never felt the same.

    Death Of Cousin Poem

    As the days go on,
    I continue to cry.
    Everything reminds me of you,
    as I look upon the sky.

    As if I would see you,
    from way up there.
    Wishing you would say something
    as I quietly stare.

    I do this a lot,
    almost every day.
    I look up, hoping to see
    the face that has slipped away.

    Today is your birthday,
    would have been thirteen.
    No one saw it coming;
    death is unseen

    I wonder what you would have wanted
    as we blew out your candles.
    As soon as the flames went out,
    it was too much to handle.

    You're not here
    on your thirteenth birthday,
    Each year I grow older,
    but your age will always stay.

    As the days go on,
    I continue to cry for you.
    I will never stop crying,
    I will never stop missing you.

  13. 11. Mom, Where Have You Gone?

    • By Tala Bloneau
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2011

    When I was 12 my mother died from heart failure, now that I'm 15 I understand more and more each day. My dad wanted to get on with life as soon as possible, therefore I wasn't able to show my true emotion, my true feelings. Now, in this poem it explain exactly how I feel after 3 years of confusion and depression.

    I will never again
    see your smiling face.
    I will never again
    feel your warm embrace.

    I cry everyday
    Wishing you'd come back.
    Life just isn't the same
    With the Mother I lack.

    "I miss you mom,
    Where have you gone?"
    My days alone,
    Just seem to long

    I Scream and yell in anger
    Wondering why your not here
    I scream and yell in Sadness
    Wishing you were near..

    Somedays I feel
    I can't handle the Pain
    Somedays I cry knowing
    That I'll never see your face again.

    I looked up to the sky
    and screamed ''Why Lord! Why!"
    and as I fell to the ground
    all I could do is cry..

    Maybe God put you there
    for a reason.
    Maybe so I can see you
    In every Season

    Maybe Life Isn't so bad
    with you gone.
    Maybe you've been
    With Me all Along

    I miss you mom,
    Where have you gone?
    My days alone, are still too long..

  14. 12. I Love You, Dad

    • By Amber N.
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2016

    My dad passed away when I was six, and I still think about him every day. He died of a heart attack, and I never got to say goodbye. I am 15 now and really wish he was here, but I know he can't be. I know that he's watching over me and protecting me as best he can. I wrote this poem in memory of him, and I hope you like it.

    Teen Loss Of A Father

    Memories are all I have
    and some pictures too,
    but those can't make up for
    all the years without you.

    My first dance recital
    you could not attend,
    and all the years after
    you have been in heaven.

    No father-daughter dances or
    a treehouse just for me,
    no one to walk me down the aisle
    as far as I can see.

    You wish you were here,
    but you cannot be.
    You were taken too early,
    but you're watching over me.

    The 31st of January,
    the day that you had passed,
    is a day that I cannot sleep;
    it's the day I saw you last.

    It's hard not to miss you.
    Sometimes I have to cry.
    Even when you're not there,
    I know you're standing by.

    The last thing that I said
    made me very sad.
    I gave you a kiss
    and said, "I love you, Dad."

    Poem To Grandma Passed Away From Leukemia

    Since the day I saw you,
    since the day we met,
    I knew this I wouldn't forget.
    I have loved you more than life itself,
    now it seems were falling apart.
    This thing that just won't go away,
    was more then you could take.
    But I'll hold on tight past the very end...
    No matter how much it hurt,
    I sat and watched you get worse.
    I held your hand all through the night,
    never to let go.
    I wake up, and you were no longer here,
    I'm haunted by these memories of you and me,
    as a tear falls down my face I remember...
    You will be here holding my hand all through the night like I did yours,
    but most of all...
    you will always be in my heart.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2007

    This poem is dedicated to a lady who I admired the most. It was so hard to see you go. Even though it happened when I was nine and now I am 13, I will never forget you!!

    Remembering A Dead Loved One

    Remember when the sun shined so bright?
    You were here and you love me with all your might.
    Now the good Lord has taken you away,
    but in my heart you will always stay.
    When you died, I didn't think I could go on,
    but your love assured me it would be okay and I would have to move on.
    There are so many thoughts left unspoken,
    wishing I could go back and tell you everything that left me heart broken.
    Walking by your casket was too much to bear,
    hearing people whisper this girl is too young to care.
    I know I was just nine when you died,
    but it still haunts me deep down inside.
    Sometimes I see you standing there,
    and I try to run but you turn into thin air.
    Life will never be the same since you're gone,
    but one thing you taught me is how to be strong.
    If I could speak to you one last time, I would say,
    "Why did you have to go so far away?"

    Daddy, I Forgot To Say Goodbye Poem

    We shared a friendship, a bond, a relationship so strong!
    I'd never thought this day would come seeing you like this today.
    It's so hard to accept the fact that you're gone forever.
    Daddy, promise me you will return someday.
    I want to know you will be with me, following me ever step of the way.
    Daddy, look over me and let me know you're there!
    You carried,
    you shared,
    you loved,
    you cared.
    Come back, Daddy.
    I forgot to say goodbye.
    Now tears prickle down my face
    as I reach the end of this poem,
    as this tells a story that will never grow old.
    It's the story of a truly remarkable man.
    Treasure your family because they won't be there someday.
    Daddy, hold on; it won't be long.

    I am 14, I lost my mother 4 months before my birthday when I was 12 going on 13. It has been about a year and a half since she died. I'm just now starting to realize and feel more of the pain. Before I just didn't want to believe. I was in denial and I'm just now getting out of that stage.

    In the blink of an eye
    I didn't know
    That I would have to say goodbye
    At night a tear rolls down my cheek

    One day I will go back to that place
    Where I last saw your face
    And say that I miss you

    Thank you so much for writing such a beautiful poem. I know you probably can't stand when people say this and trust me I know but I truly understand your pain. I lost my mom in 2005...

  19. 17. My Brother, My Best Friend

    • By Brandi Strobel

    1 year, 4 months, and 7 days ago, my 9-year-old brother passed away. He had asthma really bad. The doctor put him on medication, and it was too strong, and his lungs filled up with mucus. He couldn't breathe.
    His name was Tai. He was my best friend, and there was nothing that could separate us. We were together every day, every night. We did everything together.

    I feel so alone
    and so empty.
    You were my best friend,
    my baby brother.
    I feel so guilty,
    I should have listened to you.
    I have wished upon a million stars,
    but not one of them has brought you back.
    I wanna believe it's all a dream,
    but it's not.
    It's reality.
    This is the way it's going to stay.
    If only I we could be together again,
    like we used to.
    We were together every day,
    no matter what.
    I stuck up for you,
    and you stuck up for me.
    I was always right by your side,
    nothing could break what we had.
    No one will ever understand how I feel,
    nobody will ever feel my pain.
    I have to wake up every morning,
    knowing I could have helped you.
    The days are tough.
    Every day after school I would chill with you.
    Now, I just come home every day,
    sit, think, and feel the guilt.
    Someday we will be together again.
    I miss you!

  20. 18. Without You

    I wrote this poem a while ago after one of my best friends died.

    Mourning The Death Of A Best Friend

    Why is the world still spinning?
    Doesn't it know you're gone?
    It's an end or some kind of beginning
    But for everyone else life goes on

    How does the grass keep on growing?
    Why is the sky still blue?
    How can people go on not knowing?
    Why isn't the world missing you?

    How is there still air we're breathing?
    How is water still in the sea?
    How has everything lost all its meaning?
    Why does nobody feel it but me?

    How can weeks and months still pass?
    When you're not here anymore?
    Why does time keep on going so fast?
    What is time even passing by for?

    Why haven't we all disappeared?
    There can't be a reason to stay
    Why would anyone want to be here
    In a place that would take you away?

  21. 19. Zack

    When I first moved to NC, I was 5. My grandma signed me up for soccer. There I meet Zachary (Zack). We quickly became best friends. We knew everything about one another. We could always count on the other one to be there for us. Both of us had been through so much crap in our lives ever since we were little. But we always turned to one another for help and support. But one night only a few months ago I couldn't help him. He didn't want it. He just called to say goodbye. I wrote this poem for his birthday today.

    I'm Standing Here At Your Grave Crying

    Remember that day
    Back in the fall of '01?
    I ran down that hill
    Ready for my first
    Soccer practice,
    Not knowing anything
    About the game.
    And there you were
    In the goal knowing
    Everything possible.

    No wonder you
    Had that look
    On you face when
    The coach paired us up
    To run drills together.
    But I think it shocked
    You when I caught
    On quick and ended up
    Doing the drills better.

    Maybe that's why
    You didn't speak to me
    That night. It was the
    Next practice when
    You let me know
    Your unforgettable name.

    And almost as quick as I
    Caught on the drills we became...
    ... best friends...

    Countless hours of board games,
    Hundreds of sandcastles,
    Days spent hanging on monkey bars,
    Many sleepovers and campouts,
    Years of soccer games together,
    Sharing our first rollercoaster ride (ever!)

    Soon to follow was our...
    ... love affair ...

    Sunset walks at the beach,
    Summer nights by the lake,
    Countless hours teaching me
    To skateboard down by the park

    Where at 12 were shared our...
    ... first kiss ...

    Many more "firsts" we did share
    But it was one of our "lasts" that...
    ... changed me forever...

    My phone rang; it was you.
    You were crying, talking about ending it,
    Just giving up, said you had
    The rope in your hands right now.
    I talked and talked, trying to stop you.

    Then I heard the chair fall.
    I screamed, "NOOO!" your phone hit
    The floor and the line went dead
    As my heart dropped; tears fell
    Like the first spring rain
    When winter had just said...
    ... goodbye ...

    Flash forward to today.
    I'm standing here at your
    Grave crying, wishing you
    A happy 16 birthday.

  22. 20. I Don't Exactly Know

    • By Audrina
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2008

    September 22, 2008 my best friend committed suicide, she hung herself and her 10 year old brother found her in her bathroom.
    She was only 13 years old and barely had started living. Being 13 myself when finding this out was the worst day of my life. But I decided to take it as a learning experience and remember that God will never give me more than I can take, and "you can never get too much love". A lot of great things has come from her death, things I wouldn't have learned any other way and for that I am sorry!
    R.I.P and miss you K.L.M.

    From A Friend Left Behind

    I don't exactly know
    What took what we had,
    The fall from the chair
    Very, very bad.

    What went through your mind
    As you took your last breath,
    I hope you tasted
    The bitter taste of death.

    I hope you remember
    All the great things we share,
    And the way you make me feel
    Knowing you didn't care.

    You couldn't spare a feeling
    Maybe even two,
    You're right
    That was to much to ask from you.

    It's sad I had to ask you
    For your life,
    Am I not good enough
    Or did you have to stab me with a knife?

    The next time that we meet
    Will be at Heaven's gates,
    Good thing Heavens a great place
    Or it might remind me how much I hate...

    I hate what you did
    And I hate what you've done,
    I hate that your decision
    Is a permanent one!
