About the Poem

This poem was written the day we found out that my friend, Angela, was in a car accident. She died about a week later. I went to visit her in the hospital but the doctors wouldn't let us see her because the injuries were so bad. She was only 14 years old! Her sister had to have lots done to her face, but she lived. I miss Angela so much! We were best friends.

My Star

Breaking through the darkness I see no light,
I'm in a dark mysterious night.

In the corner of the room,
My tears no longer can be consumed.

I walk over to a little shining star,
What is it? It seems very far.

Closer I walked to the star,
Then I stop, it's the head lights of a car.

The car comes and goes through me,
It flips and tumbles and hits a big tree.

Soon other cars were there,
The lights from them looked like a fair.

They pull two bodies from the car,
I see one of them, it was my star.

I followed it to a small room,
And I enter it I hear a familiar tune.

There's a small little bed with a small child,
As the doctor left I waited a while.

I approached slowly and I saw,
My good friend lying there looking so dead.

I collapsed in agony and cried,
I told her don't you dare die!

But too late. She grew pale and was gone.
But she went inside of me.

And through her friends,
She said to us, I'll be with you till the end.

woooooooooooooooooooooow i absolutly loved your poem im no great poet myself but i find that writing poems out on paper is a way to express my feelings! its kind of weird but. i know how you feel about losing your gran i felt the same way when i lost my gran! she died of lung cancer and i was next to her whe she died she wouldnt let go of my hand and it was soooo sad i absolutly love your poem it was great-!

thank-you for this poem, it really hit home to alot of us. My god -daughter past away September 9th, we haven't been able to see her or say goodbye because her brother and sister are down in Cincinnati(Shriners)and we have been busy trying to comfort them and make sure they are going to pull through this incindent. They were all involed in a truck and tree accindent, which took the life of our fourteen year old little girl and put the other two in the hospital. There is no body to hold or even kiss because she was unable to get out. I now realize that there are others out there, but I am having a hard time dealing with the thought of not having a body to hold or see or kiss or bury. This poem helps me ! THANK- YOU

i just was recently in a car accient 12/7/05 and so was one of my best friends, adn she didnt make it . i never lost some one close to me and its the hardest thing in the world. theres not a day that goes by that i dont think of my little angel. its just not far she was only 14 years old. and it was all becuase of drunk driving. so please dont ever drink n drive its that worst take my advice u never want to go through what every one close to me or alyssa went through.

This poem touched me so much. On October 7, 2005 I lost my best friend Brittany and her little brother Devin in a car accident. Brittany lost control of her 1994 Honda Civic and collided into a bridge. I never really liked many of her other friends. Britt is a year younger than me and in another grade that's my reasoning for not liking her other friends and another thing it was always us. no one else. She was only 16 and Devin was only 13. When I read about the accident and the 2 bodies and seeing your friends die and about her being your star all I could think of was Britt and Dev (that's what I called them) So thank you. It helped a lot. RIP BDC -n- DMC
ana

i know how you feel because on july 18th 2004 will be a year for my friend angelina(angie) she was only sixteen years old when she died she died in a car accident. she was the only friend i ever lost and i didnt know how to handle it. i cried for about a week in a half but the thing that got me through it was my friends and family. till this day i just look back on the great wonderful tmes that we did have and sometimes i cry cause shes not here to do anything with me any more. s oon this sunday (7/18/04)i will be visiting the pole that her cousins car striked a year ago. but ill stay strong cause ill just remeber the good times we had together adn all are freinds will be there to help each other out. so when you get sad just think about all the good times yous two had together.
ninna
i really loved that poem as it reminds me of well it actully reminds me of 2 things 1st my uncle was killed because of this drunk guy hit him and it kills me to know that my 4 year old cousin will have to grow up with no dad because of some stupid drunk driver. 2nd one night i was walking home with 2 of my buddies KALA and JAMES i herd a car come around the corner and just take james and kala with it. my best friend for 9 years died kala and james another close friend is brain dead. the thought that goes through my head every night "that could have been me thank you jesus"

Shinomizu
I had once decided not to love anyone, just to avoid this sort of pain. But now I regret the days I've lost and thrown away with merciless solitude. What a true friend can give to you, is something no one can describe if never felt it. You simply learn how to love, openly and just for love's sake. That's why friends should never die - but the poet is right: our love keep the ones we love forever living. Amazing poem, I love it :-)
Roxann

He was talking at a young age of 9 but look on the bright side he went earlier but got to stay w/ our heavinly father longer!
