The pain of loosing someone can easily come at a young age

This poem originally was published in Poems on Life - Teen Poems

Goodbye
As I walked into the high school,
People were watching us.
But I didn't notice now.

I walked over to you,
I touched your sweet face.
I tried not to cry, but the tears
they were always there.

I tasted the tears of anger and sorrowness,
I tried to tell myself it was all a bad dream -
But then I realized that dreams
aren't supposed to hurt you.

As I leaned over,
I whispered into your ear,
I love you.

Then I put the flowers on the casket,
And I quietly walked out saying,
Goodbye.
