My poem is about someone I loved very much and lost in a car wreck. Saying good- bye to someone can be the hardest thing to do. A loved ones death is the hardest to cope with, especially a boyfriend. I know that he is in a much better place now.

Dedicated to Larry

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Poems about Death

Saying Good-bye
Sitting here thinking about you,
I here you call my name,
Laura, Laura, Laura

As I turn to see who's calling me
I see no one, only hear your voice.

I glance across the room,
To see if anyone else hears it too.

But no one seems to notice the look on my face.

I miss you so much,
I keep telling you,
But you don't seem to hear me.

Still you're calling out my name, only louder,
As the tears rolled down my face,
I glance around the room,
And see you amongst my family, and friends
The look upon your face says you're peaceful now.

I realized it was time to let you go.
Although I will always love and miss you.

I turn my head to see if anyone notices you.
Then I turn back, and you're gone.

I hear you, so very gently say,
"I love you", "Good- Bye!"
"Bye", I said . . .

    When i read this poem, the tears started rolling down my face. I had a dream exactly like the poem about my dead boyfriend, and my name is Laura, how weird is that? Reading it is almost like reading something I wrote myself.

    As I sit here in tears, all I can say is thank you. My Aunt and Cousin were murdered July 9, 2006. They were shot in the head. Over a stupid $10 ring. Your poem means the world to me. Thank you Sweetie117. I am so glad I read this.

    I lost my youngest sister 2 days ago. I keep seeing her face, hearing her voice, and smelling her cologne. I can't stop crying, the pain is unbearable. Yet, I also realized it was time to let her go. I made the decision to make her a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate). I told her that I didn't want her to die, that I loved her so much and was going to miss her more than even I could imagine. She smiled and told me she was going to be OK. Then she kissed me, said me she loved me, closed her eyes and died shortly thereafter. This poem so perfectly expresses what I am going through. It reminds me that I am not the only person to have ever felt this way, that saying Good-Bye to a loved one is hard, but that I, too, will be OK. [Good-Bye Lori, I will always love you. You will forever be in my heart. ]
