This poem was written for a friend of mine that left us, seemingly much to young. But she always seemed to have an inner knowledge that urged her to lead the most fulfilling life she could.

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

Forever Young
Trapped in the glorious years
within the memory of belief, lost of all grief.
Take the reasons,
which once seemed so clear,
but never mind, you have nothing to fear.
For you my fried will be, forever young,
Forever in the heart of memories.

Lost in the glory of all time,
the wisdom was there within that smile,
You see you could have told us,
there within lies the mystery.

So shed a smile, and grin a tear,
For you my friend, will be,
Forever young, Forever young.
Forever in the heart of memory,
We see not through or misery.
Forever young, forever young.
There's a new angel tonight.

    I just lost a good friend only 17 years old. I had a crush on him. He talked to me everyday and inspired me. We were going to school soon about to go play pool then his mom called the school and told us he's just been shot dead and murdered in his home trying to protect his family from the intruder. I couldnt believe it i was looking foward to that day with him and i just spoke to him over the phone at 7:45. He was pronounced dead at 8:30. Im so broken

    My aunt died last week and my uncle died today and i guess this poem just kind of touched and i dont know why! I want so badly to cry but my uncle always said "Be strong dont cry in the end everything turns out good" So i guess i will try and be strong and i will try not to cry!
