A Poem by Manda

She asks why? Only wishing she knew the answer...

I wish I knew the answer
To why you had to go.


I ask...

Why did you do this to him
And not me?

Why did you have to end his life
And not mine?

Why did you make us say goodbye
For the last time

Why did he
Have to die?

I keep asking


I won't ever relive the day
I watched him die

It makes me cry


I'll never know why
He had to die

remember all that was-and all that was will still
a sweet sweet memory alive and well-hold to that
memory I'll never die

You can tell that it comes from the heart. It almost made me cry! Good job.

Really heartfelt. The best poems come from true feeling and you can definitely tell how true this is.

Posted 9 Years Ago

it definitely comes from the heart though it may not be absolutely perfect technically.
it just oozes out sadness. plain, truthful, honest, unpretentious, unshrinking Sadness.

Posted 9 Years Ago

It's dripping with emotion. Beautiful write.

Death sucks.
Grief sucks.
Sorry for the awful time you had to go through.

Posted 9 Years Ago

The format to me was a bit confusing, and to me it was honestly a bit too cliche for my taste, but your writing is really, really good. Its all the matter of coming up with a good story idea. Thats my two cents.
