A Poem by Rose Elizabeth

Someone at my school, a senior to be exact, died in a car crash this past Friday and I felt the need to write something about it. So this piece is dedicated to him eventhough at this time I can't quite remember his name.



So Sad
That you died like that
I never knew you
I don’t even know your face
I might, if someone would show it to me
How can I cry for a boy I never knew
But I look around at all the bowed heads
And all the tear stained faces
And how can I not feel that pain
How can I stand by and just watch
Without a twitch of the heart
I don’t know how you went
Or really when you went
But I do know
Your presence won’t go unforgotten
I might not know you
But that doesn’t mean others didn’t
You had friends and family
I’m sure
They will miss you
And as for me
I’ll say a prayer
I’ll pray for you
I’ll pray for your parents
I’ll pray for your friends
I’ll give them condolences
And then I’ll pray for all the others
That they might not suffer the way you did
That their parents won’t suffer like yours
That their friends won’t suffer like yours
Then if all goes as planed
The sun will rise tomorrow
I and the rest of us on earth
Will put on our go and get ‘um faces
And we will go on
As you watch from a fluffy white cloud
In heaven above
So Sad

That was really beautiful.

This is really touching. It actually reminded me of a few people who have passed away in my life as I read. Well done :)

Amazing, it reminds me of a funeral where we are all crying but later we get back to our lives and can only look back with sadness.

Had something similiar happen my senior year. Didn't know him very well, but many did and I met his mom afterwards. Good write.
