I wrote this about a dear friend whose life was stolen from her in the midst of her youth. Although grief is an emotion that we often feel we will never recover from, there is truth and a reason for everything. One day, our tears will wash away the sorrow, but time will never wash away our dear memories. For even death has no control over the boundaries of love.

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

No More Tears To Cry
a year and a half
since that cold day in January
yet I still remember it like it was yesterday
(I guess to me it always will be )

rain poured down as if it desperately needed to rid itself of all moisture
as if the clouds felt that they had to ring out all the water that night

that very night
or else the world would come to a drastic end

to me that "end" seemed to come anyway

the streets were pools of water
cars spinning out of control
she never had a chance to grow up

she was merely fifteen

too young to experience life on her own
yet too old to have it spoon-fed to her

she wanted to be independent
a rebel
she wanted to say that she had done it without her parents ever knowing
but they found out

2:00 AM
knock on the door
"I'm sorry ma'am"
was the first words out of his mouth
"your daughter was killed tonight in a car accident"
the world came to a halting stop and yet the room still managed to
continue to spin

"you don't know what you are talking about"
"my baby . . . my baby, she's upstairs sleeping"

frantically she ran up the stairs
she was gone
no where to be found

its over

she was identified

it was really her

a best friend to so many . . . her life stolen away

I heard the next day

full of disbelief I acted as if I never heard the words

"lies . . . our school is so full of lies . . . its only a nasty rumor, you know how
that is"
was my reply to the news that soon became a reality to me shortly after

I saw her

lying . . . still
no movement
although I could have sworn that at any moment she was just going to rise
up out of the baby blue bed that she rested in and bring peace to a room
full of grief

it didn't even look like her

it wasn't her

too long I glared at her
questions running through my mind like a freight train at a speed to fast
to comprehend

"God, she was just a child. How could a life so young, be stolen so
quickly? "

no reply

I got infuriated with Him
she was a good kid
just made a few bad choices
I never thought they were severe enough to be punishable by death

the next day
as I witnessed the casket that held the breathless
body of my dear friend
be lowered into the earth

tears poured down my cheeks like rain out of heaven

it was so cold that day
I could feel the salty droplets dry hard on my

fifteen degrees

I wondered for so long about the life of my friend
I pondered this question so many times

why shall the innocent die, while the murderers run free?

how come she never got to fulfill the "perfect"
plan that we are all promised?

it has taken me this year and a half to understand the loss of my friend
it has taken me this long to realize that her
plan was played out

it is all summed up in this one word that often brings shutters to the
bones of so many


her death was a lesson to all that she left behind life is fragile
there is no way that we can control who lives and dies
all we can do is have faith that we will get through it

good and bad are obvious and sometimes not so obvious

right and wrong choices can determine life or death

so it's time for us to wake up
mourn no more
for time will heal our broken hearts

and one day
there will be no more tears to cry

    um. wow! Im 15 and i got into a really bad car accident on the first of December. I ended up breaking my neck in three different places. we were messing around on a gravel road and rolled the car about 50 yards into a field. I was very lucky that night to have lived. I had to have had someone watching over me because i am still walking and am almost a normal kid again! I might end up not getting all my movement back though. But thank you this poem really made me happy that i am alive.

  • sarah
    I'm so very sorry that you lost your friend that day. your poem touched my heart because I could feel the pain and sadness go through me. your poem has probably helped many get through pain and know in life you have choices and to be careful of the choices that you make bacause life is just to short and Im sorry your friend died the way that she did,but at least you know she is home now. I put a sincerist heart to you and other friends and family that lost her. At least you will have the comfort knowing she is watching and smiling at you because of this beautiful poem that you have made and expressed your feelings to other people of your friend. thank you for touching my heart and others. sincerely, sarah

  • Ashley
    This is an absolutly amazing poem. My 16 year old brother was killed in 1997 in a car accident in New Oxford penna. I was only 6 at the time, the police called my house asking for my parents, and i answered the phone, after going to get my mother, she came to the phone, and after she hung up, she bust into tears saying my sister and I were to lock the doors, and not let anyone in they would be back soon. It was not untill after my mother and father came back from the hospital. They sat my sister and me down, and said "girls your brother Mickey was in a car accident tonight, he didn't make he was killed. " then they both busted into tears, I couldn't believe it I was just dumbstruck I couldn't cry or anything. I may have only been 6 but I definatly understood that I would never see my big brother again. I miss him to this day, and even though I didn't cry then I cry now, I have dreams about his accident, and wake up crying so hard I can't even breath. I know what it is like to loose someone you love.

  • tiara
    I love this poem because not too long ago I lost 4 of the most greatest guys in the world! I loved one and this jus helps me and many people who lost someone special to them get through the pain. How this poem says that she dies in a car accident. well my 4 great friends, Josh, Joey, Ian, and Dustin died the same way and I acted the same way!
  • Brittney

  • Dana
    your poem was really good i liked it
  • Daniela
    This poem really touched me because someone i loved deeply was killed in a car accident 1 year ago next week. This person was only 25, 10 days before the accident.
  • Ashely
    I loved this poem,although it was sad,it was soo true. This has inspired me not to sneak out of the house or do things my momma would get mad at me bout,cuz i wouldn't want my momma to get a knock at the door by someone tellin her i'm dead and she think i'm up in my room. I wouldn't want to do that to her. I am so very sorry to what happened to your friend!I hope your poem inspire others as it did me.
  • yatavia
    i lost my mother a year ago and it was raining when th casket was lowered into the ground i was numb and couldnt feel a thimg i could barley stand, now and then i feel her presence and wish that she was here this poem helped me realize that people feel the same way that i do and i would love to chat with you sometimes about death and how long it take to realize it sincerely yatavia
  • ana

  • Jerrica
    the truth in it Life is fragile
  • Randi
    This poem is so moving it has a lot of emotion. I lost a friend a year ago and I was filled with so much emotion and so many questions. I really wish I could bring her back and I can't. You have to have faith to get through a tuff time. You have to know in your heart that they are in a better place smiling and watching down you. This poem is really moving and touched me a lot.
  • Peggy
    If only all teen could not only read this but understand that the "it only happend to others" is exately what others are saying too.
  • Chelsey
    So much of this poem is related to my situation. I just lost one of my best friends when we were in a car accident. There are so many similarities in the poem. She was only fifteen,and the accident happened just after 2:00 am, and when I saw her in the casket it didn't look like here. Not all of this poem was the same but the parts that were really touched me.
  • Elizabeth
    This poem is very touching it really had me crying. Please keep up the good work

  • Teresa
    This touched me so. I have went through what you have only worse it was my 25 yr old brother killed in a car accident. His friend and him were driving home from a party Super Bowl Night Jan. 28,2001. HIs friend was drving to fast and they slammed into a light pole, my brother died instantly though his friend walked away with just a scratch. He tried to put my brother in the driver seat like he was driving. Till this day Im still not over it, and through time i will understand why he was taken so soon and he was planning to visit me that spring. So I hope you get through it as well as i do.

    This has really deaply touched my heart! I cried half way through the poem! I lost a friend in March 2nd in a car crash. I have known him since I was a baby. This poem made me realize that you should never think that it was your fault for something that happened like God was balming you. That same year that my friend died I lost two other people and I felt like it was a punishment! Thank you for helping me realize that it wasnt my fault! this really touched my heart on so many ways!
  • ricki
    this peom really touched me. i was actually looking for a peom about my grandpa but i came across this one and it was to much like mine. My freind died when she was 12 she went out at night and crossed the streets and got hit by a car. She didnt get to live her life. It was very hard for me, losing my good freind. All she need was desipline and a lesson. Maybe shed still be alive if she had.

    This poem really touched me cause my friend was 14yr. old when she died on a 4 wheeler on the fourth of july only 8 days after her birthday. I remember the call at 2:00 in the morning from my best-friend telling me that that Ashleigh had died from a horrible 4 wheeler accident. I couldn't do anything, but lay there in bed and pray that they weren't talking about my best friend ashleigh. That mabey for some odd reason they had the wrong number. but i was wrong they had the right number and they were talking about my friend ashleigh. I was Five months pregant and i had talked to her only 3 days befor this horrible day. She told me she couldn't wait to see my baby girl she swore that it would be the most beautiful baby.

    I really think is the most saddest poems i've ever read. Tears run down my cheek because of this. I have lost a special friend name Jamie. Jamie was a special female friend to me. I think about it everyday. It haunts me to death. Please take a moment of silence to remember my friend Jamie.

  • Lamanda
    This poem really touched me, I just lost someone that was so close to me he was like a brother, and this poem brought back the memory. When I think about that January night around 11 when we found him. I just lay in my bed at night and wonder why him, my grades started dropping and I can't sleep at night anymore. I would lay in my bed and cry and ask why him. I even wrote a poem but I don't think I'm gonna submit it yet because it's something memorable from me to him. I just want to thank you for being so strong and being able to publish this because, I know exactly how you feel.
  • Heather

  • ashley
    this poem made me cry when i read it so i had to say something about it. I think it really describes what is going through your head and the emotions you feel. also I think everyone know what it feel like when you've run out of tears.
  • Ashley
    I loved your poem! It brought me to tears to read it. I couldn't imagine losing someone that young that was so close to me. I did loose my grandma a few months ago but that was cancer related. I would have to give you a 15 out of 10.
  • Chelsea
    It was a very good and life teaching poem and it really touched me.
  • shruti

  • griselda
    this poem means alot to me right now. i just lost a friend a couple of days ago. and its like a burden in my heart. it was so unexpected and we didnt even get to say goodbye or how much we really love her. i dont think anyone should wait for smth like this to happen to tell someone how u feel. peolpe, plz, dont take life for granted. u never know when ur life will end. live ur life to the fullest. and know she did. even though her life was cut short, she was only 16. we will miss you very much ksenia.
  • Kate

I miss him soo much i still cant believe hes still gone soo thats y i like this one.
  • jessica
    i really liked this poem because i had a friend or more like a sister pass away not even a year ago but it is so hard to think about her because her birthday is coming up in April and she isnt here to celibrate her 16th with us and it just isnt fare
  • alyssa
    Hey, your poem was amazing!I am sorry about the incident. Sometimes I want too take my life. Then I read something like this and it makes me realize. Realize how many people wanted to live. But they lost their lfe over an accident. It could happen to me. But why do it on a planned procedure? But you know your right it is a lesson. In a way its a lesson to me too.

  • Alyssa
    I like this poem so much because I lost a vey dear friend on October 6,2003. His birthday was the day after mine and this poem kind of reminds me of him because he was also very young (22) and I thought "This can't be happening"'he's too young to go just yet. " But it doesn't matter how old you are. When god is ready to take you he will.
  • Jessica
    The poem was very moving and it shows you that you should never take the life of a loved one forgranted.
  • Lynnette

  • sara
    Hi, i enjoy this poeam alot, i have had 3 of my friends die this yr alone, and 2 of them were from car wrecks, one was in the rain, and the other was by a train on the way to school, i will never forget my friends, and it is true it takes you a while to figure out why in the world they take your friends, noone was his enemy he was the nicest guy alive, but god wanted him there, so you have to live your life to the fullest and always care, cuz you never know who will die. , but anyways this poem is very touching

He recieved his justice the moment he entered heaven
  • Tami
    This poem actually made me cry. when reading it, you get caught up in the emotion. even though the people it's about may be strangers, the feelings it causes are indescribable.
  • Margaret

I am a lover and writter of poetry my self and I know what it is like to think of somthing that deep and meeningful and forget it by the time I get ahold of pen and paper. keep on writting the world deserves so

    i really like your poem i had a homeboy who past away too. i love him alot and miss him.
  • Daire
    This poem was so beautiful. It reminded me of my first boyfriend when i was 15, and memories of how i felt came flooding back when i thought of the night he died in a car accident. Six years on, im 21 next week and i still cry for the boy i lost.
  • jessica
    Pamela, i just want to say that like. i mean the way you expressed yourself so well in the poem, with so much detail. it made me cry because it reminded of the loss of my boyfriend a couple of weeks ago. then my friend dies the exact same way as in your poem. I hope you have a good life and hope you can get through it.
  • Jen
    Amazing poem. It really makes people think about the choices they make. You're right, Pamela. One day, when people realize that the choices they make determine life or death, the world will be void of tears. I loved this poem. God bless you.
  • amber
    This is a wonderful poem. In September 2002 I lost one of my good friends due to a car accident two days later another student from my school died in a car accident. my school was in shock we didnt think something like that could ever happen to us but it did. in that week we had 3 deaths from different car accidents.

  • Vanes
    It is too often that we are judged and criticized on the pieces that mean the most to us. I judge you on the experience you have witnessed not the words that begin a process of healing for your heart. Anybody can write a few words on a piece of paper and be judged according to the format. I'd rather judge you and say I know that this is a masterpiece because it's a piece from one's soul. It was a pleasure for me to read. Altough I am sure it took everything you had to accomplish.
  • Betty
    This poem shows so many feelings and is full of compassion. It is well worded and no doubt straight from the heart of the writer.
    I really liked your poem. I lost a best friend about a year and a half ago that was young to. Im sorry about the death of your friend.
  • Lety
    It was fabulous I wish it would never happen to one of my friends because I really care for them even though I get mad at him every once in a while.
  • Chels
    I loved it, it made me cry. It reflects on how I feel right now. I lost my best friend Codi in a car accident about a month or two ago, and this poem is how i feel. Codi was only 15, she didnt deserve to die! R. I. P Codi, I love you!
  • Liz
    This is a very nice poem also a very sad poem I am so sorry 4 the lose of your friend!
  • Lori

    this poem really brings back memories for me since i had a very close friend of mine get killed in a car accident. it happened two years ago and to this day I still keep her close to my heart and sometimes find myself slipping in the memory of her name, face, voice, the way she danced and her beautiful voice. She had a voice of an angel R.I.P Andrea I love you..

  • pamela
    your poem touched me in a way i never knew. i recently lost my dear cousin and great friend in the same way you lost your friend.i idolised him and there is no way in hell that i ever thought that this sort of thing could ever happen to my family. but it did and your poem made me realise that the bad things in life we can't predict or prevent, you just have to live each day as if it was your last because one day it will be. you don't know how much you have untill it is gone.
  • Tabitha
    The poem was wonderful. I lost my very best friend about 4 in a half years ago and it was the hardest thing to overcome.. I miss her very much and never understood why God had to take her so young..and why so violently? And even though I miss her and wish she was still here with us today I understand the lesson..so please..no matter what age you are always look both ways before crossing the street.. ur poem was great and has helped alot : )
  • larissa

  • Amanda
    WOW! This poem is very powerful with it's words! I think a lot of my friends, including myself, know how you feel, because we had three students in our high school die this year from a car accident. It opened up everyone's eyes. It made us realize that life is too short to be taking advantage of it! Tahnk you for touching so many hearts!

    This poem is so true. The words touched my heart. Everyday another life is take in a car wreck from a kid just wantin' to be a kid. The guilty remain on the streets. There are too many kids dyin' today for no good reason. We must stop the stupid choices that are made!

  • christy
    I lost my best friend in march of this year. I could guess that he felt that he failed, for his goal in life was to make everyone's day brighter and when he left us we were very sad and our day gloomy. He was a almost perfect countryboy and pround to be a redneck. "Shorty" was killed in a car wreck from over correcting a mistake and went through a fence. My days aren't as long now that i know he is still with me, but i can't stress it enought to people that life is to perecious to live for the next moment. Living for the vary minute is what it is all about. Thank you for sharing your peom with me.
  • angela
    Oh my. I don't know what to say. That is so sad. I really liked it. You did a great job of writing that.
  • Ashley
    I totally love this poem. It's exactly what happened to one of my best friends about 2 months ago that died in a car accident. It has really helped me understand better about the death of him. My friends and I did understand though that this was a lesson in disguise. We just couldnt understand why him. It was a terrible tragedy all too much like this one. Thanx for this poem. It means more to me than anything!
  • Danielle
    this poem reminds me of when my grandma died. thanks for the great poem. I brigs back memories.
  • J.C.
    This is a very sad and touching poem, and i hope that people will express their feelings in a poem or song, instead of violence, after a loved one passes away.
  • Tiffani

  • Kristy
    I realy liked this poem. After I read it I started to cry.
  • Nevada
    I thought this poem was a great poem. I ran in to an incident like this only it was my boyfriend , so i know what it feels like to loose a loved one , he was killed in a car accident and i felt for him for months after his death , this poem helped me realize that the only way to deal with the pain is to let nature take its course , the ones who love you that are around you will help you.
  • Taama
    the year 2000 was bad for me.i lost a close friend in Feb. to an auto accident, my Dad in March to surgery, and my nephew in law in June to a motercycle accident. Needless to say, your poem really hit home with me. I also e-mailed it to the family members of the friend that died and to my niece. Maybe it will help to know that they are not alone. Somehow no matter who you know of that has been through something like this you always feel alone. Thank you for sharing your memories with the world.
  • Candy
    Your pome makes me think of my cuz,she past on just last week. She was only 16 with a little babyboy. He is 3mths old and hes not going to know who is mom was. I did not know her, wish I did. I know she was a good girl and mom. She had so much love in her life.
