About the Poem

This poem is about a friend of mine who died. Her death was quite sudden and is still hard for me to accept. Every time I see a rose I think of her, which is why I picked Rosebud for my pen name. Even now, I still need her. I miss you Diana!


You truly were an angel
sent from God in heaven above.
Your shocking death just broke the hearts of everyone you loved.
When I found out that you had died
I thought that they were wrong.
You were so alive - and then
just like that, you were gone.
A flame blown out in seconds,
Confirming our worst fears -
A light that shines no more on earth
for which we shed many tears.
But still you are my beacon
And I need you right now.
You hear all the prayers I say
Because they are answered somehow.
I wish that you could be here,
But in a way you are.
Your symbol of a rose goes everywhere with me,
so I know you can't be far.
It still is quite a shock to me
that you had to die;
But no one will forget you
And I love you, and goodbye.

I realy enjoyed reading this poem, as i have just recently lost my uncle, i know that this poem has been written for a friend, but i feel that it still applies to the way i feel. I miss my uncle loads and I love him To pieces, and i would do anything to get him back. So i understand the way you feel.
i thought that this poem was very touching i too have a sister that i lost in a tragic way thought i was very good
Your poem reminded me so much of my mother, who's name is also Diana. And her wedding ring was a rose with a diamond in the middle. She passed away 7 years ago in April, and it too came as a shock. I really enjoyed your writing.
you poem touched my heart! a month ago my sister and her boyfriend were in a car wreck my sister made it through but her boyfriend didn't, me and him grew up together in school his smile could light up the world. we weren't very close but his smile was so warm it made you love him. i find myself crying for him everyday. thank you for your poem!
I loved this poem so much, I just had one of my best friends shot on her 18th birthday and this one really hit home. so thank so much, I hope Rosebud keeps writing.
this poem made me cry. and thats because my mother died in and asthmas attaque not to long ago i was only 12 but she died 9 days befaure my 13th birthday. I really miss her and i cant believe she's gone especially when she died in front of me and she was screaming my name as she was gasping for air. My lil brother who is 11 doesn't really under stand that he wont see her ever again but that she'll always be with us. So all this just to say your poem is great and you should make more!

Right now I'm here, missing a friend and a coworker who was killed by a drunk driver on June 13 2004. I miss him soooo much and it's really hard for me to understand that he is gone. He was really white (pale) and he reminded me of a white rose so when I read the poem it just reminded me of him and how much I'll miss him.
This was excellent, a friend of mine just passed away two days ago. This fit very well. What a coincidence my name is also Diana though.
This poem is a great reflection of the life of my best friend whom past away 6 days before Christmas on Dec 19, 2003. She was 24 years old and expecting her 1st child. She was beautiful both inside and out. Her death came without notice and we are all learning to cope with this tradegy and this poem really inspired me.
this was a really good poem. it really relates to me because i had a friend that i have known since i was 2 years old and we have gronw to be best friens. his mom was like my mom and last year i got a phone call hearin that she had passed away and i dint want to believe it cuz she was like a second mom and it was like losin i loved one i never thought i would. and i really didnt believe it till i walked in there soo i can really relate to your poem. oo yeah it was a really good poem.
I loved your poem. My cousin died in a car accident Nov. 5, 2003. She loved nature especially roses. They were passed out at the funeral. Like you a rose will always remind me of her. Thank you for sharing your poem it means a lot to me.
I only read this peom becuase my name is DIANA and when I did I thought that I should tell you that it means alot to me not only did it share my name but it shared my heart, my feelings and even my loss.
I want to thank you, Sept. 10, 2003. My friend, and my boss, Diana passed away today. I was searching for a poem or a story that would make me feel better. I found you. In loving memory of Diana
I loved this poem, it was really good. It relates to me alot on how i am feeling right now. On Sunday May 11, 2003(mothers day)I lost someone I loved very much! He was only 19 years old he didnt even get to live the rest of his life he was way to young to die. I miss him so much and I wish he was here right now. He died in a bad car accident and I just wish i was there to say good bye and I Love You! Now all i have is memories that i will cherish 4-ever. I cant wait till we see each other again some day that day will come

We lost our niece in Feb, 2000 and this poem makes me think of her even more if that is possible, she was like a child to me.
This poem is so beautiful i couldnt resist crying it was amazing i liked it alot.
This poem caught my eye because it reminded me of my favorite aunt. It fit perfectly, except her death wasn't sudden, she died from a six year battle with breast cancer! This was over 20 years ago that she passed away, and I miss her so much!
