Sweet Memory - Poem by Anna Lucija

Nothing can change the way I feel
Nothing can hide the pain
I wipe my tears and force a smile
But i break down in tears again

Nothing can take away the guilt
That's consumed me since that day
Nowhere to hide, I've been running alone
Since the day she flew away

Nothing can bring her back again
From Death she'll never be free
I await the day we can play with the stars
But 'til then, my friend, you're a sweet memory


[Note from poet: aged 9 my friend and her sister tragically died in a car crash. This is the poem i wrote a few years after to try to express how i felt. So this is for Marie, and her sister Sacha]

    That's a lovely poem Anna, one can really feel the heartbreak in it. Sincerely Ernestine Northover. By the way it's nice to find another poet from Derby here on PH. All best wishes with your studies at university. (Report)Reply
