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.

    Hearing The News A Loved One's Passing

    I remember calls through my cell phone.
    Voices on the other end being hurt and distant.
    Long silent pauses as I let REALITY sink in.
    Warm tears streaming down my cheeks.
