Gone - Poem by Alice Silvers

I am dead, gone forever
I wonder why this happened to me
I hear my loved ones cry
I see them suffering
I want to tell them it will be alright
I am dead, gone forever

I pretend they can still feel me there with them
I feel so helpless
I touch my coffin as they lower my body into the ground
I worry people will forget me
I cry because they cry
I am dead, gone forever

I understand I must go
I say I love you
I dream of the day I will be with them again
I try and console them silently
I hope they will be alright
I am dead, gone forever

    I like the other poem more. This poem is good, dont get me wrong. It is saddening reading about how you say goodbye. And this poem does it well. Well done (Report) Reply
