You smiled first

You smiled first

A Poem by Jack...
"

I lost a good friend today

"

 

 

You smiled first

then so did I

~

I said hello

and you said hi

 

 

Now you are gone

I sit and cry

~

You smiled first

I said goodbye

It is hard to grasp that those we love are only lent to us for a short time. It's a hard lesson to learn...

This is profound and eloquent, and so endearing to the memory of your friend. You should frame it and place it somewhere in your house where the sun shines upon it every day.

Take care, my friend!

Losing someone you love is one of the hardest things to ever go through. I'm sorry for your loss. This is beautiful and saddening.

Thank you so much Brittany. I love the quote.
Firstly, I need to say sorry for your loss, Jack - It is so upsetting when someone close to us passes away. Heaven has gained an Angel, my friend. She's your Angel now. This is a bitter sweet write, short but has so many emotions.

Lovely job.

Any time Jack
Short but sweet in it's own right. In such a few lines you've captured such sadness, and gave extreme light to the saying "read between the lines". I loved it.

Thank you so very much Sarahlin. Sorry for your loss.
I am so very sorry for your loss, Jack. :( Losing a friend is like losing a part of your soul. What's worse, even if we know how fleeting life is, even if we think that we are prepared for someone dear to us to pass away, when it actually happens... No one is really ready for it. After everything, you can only find yourself thinking of how it all happened so fast and how short our time with that person really was.

This is a really touching and endearing poem you have written for your friend. I am certain that she would have loved it.

Thanks so much Keith.
Oh wow! What a sweet memorial to her and the love you felt for each other. I believe even though the ones we love may have passed along, as long as their memory stays in our hearts a piece of them remains. I lost my sister a few years ago to breast cancer and I find myself thinking of times gone by from time to time. She is still in my heart and will remain till the end of my time here on this earth.

Take care and keep inspiring us with your writing.
