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.

    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
