A Letter From: Hope (To: Heath Ledger)

A Letter From: Hope (To: Heath Ledger)

A Poem by Leah

I had JUST finished watching the movie "The Dark Night" when my family went out for dinner at Red Robin. Just when my parents were yelling at my brother for doing something stupid, I started thinking about Heath Ledger and how i would NEV


Gone is the life we always took.

Too late is the ground that never shook.

We could have never believed it was possible before.

That his life was the only thing that mattered more.

Gone are the days that made us wonder.

We shook, we sang, and then went under.

I could not have believed it was possivle then.

Gone are the days when we wondered, “When”.

I could not have believed that he died alone.

And the courage, the love, he’d always shone.

He is with us now, everytime we speak.

Left are the days when he made us weak.

I will always remember that smile he gave.

And the things he said at the end of his days.

I will always remember how much he loved me.

And that it took me forever to finally see.

That what he’d given me.

Was what he’d given to all.

A hope for the future.

A landing for the fall.

I’ll never remember the last words he said.

Gone are the days when he Played the dead.

Beautiful poem. It reminded me of something you'd read at a funeral.
It was sweet. I think I'll have my cousin read it. -she just lost 2 friends in an accident.
