About the Poem

This poem was written shortly after the death of my good friend, Ryan, who died a tragic death by falling asleep while driving. Like the poem states, I never really thought that it would come so soon. It was a hard time not only for me, but for all of his friends. This poem goes out to anybody who has lost someone close to them.

Friends Until The End

We used to talk
We used to laugh
We were best of friends
I thought that’s how it would always be
You taught me so much
Told me exactly what to say
I wish it were still the same
But someday I know it will
Maybe not today
But we’ll meet up again
It won’t be long until I see your face
In Heaven that marvelous day

My best friend Chris just died 2 days ago from a massive heart attack, he was only 16 years old. No one ever expected this he was one of the sweetest most caring person you would have ever met.

On friday (11/21/03) I lost my best friend Jassmine. We were walking to the movies along with her bf steven and my dog kept following us and we tried to get it but she didnt want to come to us. So my dog ran in the street and when it tried coming back to our side of the street it got hit by a car but was stil alive. My friend Jassmine always wanted to be a vet and her first instinct was to run to the dog so nomore cars would hit it and instead some big truck hit both of them and dragged Jassmine's body. Eventhough this bearly happened 1 week ago, the pain and image is still there and it wont ever leave. The poem speaks for me and I hope that when life ends for me, she will be waiting for me at the gate to be idiots again, but this time. forever. I miss u Jassmine

I really liked your poem. I also lost someone very close to me b/c he fell asleep behind the wheel one year ago. Today is his birthday. He would be 48. He was like a father to me I knew him all my life. I miss him so much. I still can't believe he is gone. I'm sorry about your friend. Things like this are the things you never expect to happen. But the worst thing is. it always happens to good people who are loved by everyone. I love you Rusty!

Hi! I loved this poem so much it made me cry! About 2 years ago my best friend in the world told me that she had cancer. Then about 4 weeks ago my best friend died. She was everything to me. We useto do everything together! We had about 4 sleepovers a week, and we saw eachother everyday. The day she was put back in the hospitol I went in to see her and cried the whole time. I couldnt stand seeing her like that. I know that someday I will get to see her again, and I hope thats soon because I dont know what to do without her. I miss her to much and I always will!
