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.


Gone In A Flash

If Only I Had Known

If only I had known
it would be the last time I heard your voice,
I would have kept you up just a little bit longer.

If I had known
it would be the last time I told you I love you,
I would have said it hundreds of times over.

If I had known
it was the last time I was gonna hold you in my arms,
I would have held on tighter.

If I had known,
I would have done it all better.
Kissed you harder, held you longer.

If I had known you had that gun,
I would have had one too.
