About the Poem
This poem is dedicated to my best friend who passed away at the age of thirteen. She was in a tragic car accident with her brother; she lasted in a coma for only 11 short days, but never made it to her 14th birthday, to 8th grade graduation, or even to finish basketball season. In loving memory of Deena.
Dedicated to the greatest friend in the entire world. I miss you, and I think of you everyday. I wish you could be there next weekend for our first prom. I love you.
|It sounds so fun, driving around in the sun.
She was so innocent, young, and sweet.
She had the world right at her feet.
Who would have known that she would die,
leaving everyone she touched to grieve and to cry?
Into the car she got so fast,
She didn't know that today was her last.
It all came up to fast for sight,
But she didn't give up without a fight.
Her funeral was the saddest day of my entire life.
Reality cut through me like a knife.
In another place in another time,
Her life no longer a part of mine.
