You only live a short life

You only live a short life

A Poem by emily

Please don't critisize too much on my spelling or grammer. This is a pretty personel poem. Thank you!

You only live once.
But once is not enough.
Once is not enough to take away the sadness.
Once is not enough to take away the pain.
You said that you had no family left.
But we were your family.
You meant the world to us.
If only you could have seen how much we cared.
If only you could see how much we will miss you.
You said you were going to hell.
But hell is for the wicked and that is not you.
I don't really believe in a heaven.
But if there is a heaven, I hope to meet you there someday.

This poem is dedicated to the loss of a good friend. He was a very talented writer on WC but in the end, he wasn't able to find happiness for himself.

This is so sad and heartbreaking. I really felt your hurt and upset. And realization they did what they did. All because they felt worthless. May the RIP.

I liked the poem it had a lot of deep meaning I could feel the pain and the emotion as it was the deriving force as the words moved me. then I am not really that good at things when comes describing poems but I felt a should least take look and give you some input ( He He)
