The Death Of A Friend - Poem by Tissa Calvert

You were in hurry to your school,
You lost control of the car and got in a very bad wreck, but that wasn't cool
And left us alone and grieving every hour of the day.
Your sister couldn't even play,
And it messed up her days.

We miss you oh so much and wished you were ok,
But things just happened that way,
we were glad to hear you were a christian and now you're there with god,
Why he took you this early we all just do not know.
You were too young to die,
Now you lay with the lord with all our prayers lifted,
While you were with us you were very very gifted,
Now we'll see you in heaven when he lifts us with him.
Good night Amanda Knowland P.S. it is us.

Tissa Calvert

Amanda was everyones best friend and she was also a cheerleader and the only cheerleader that would talk to me. Anyways she passed away last year in March of 2007 it is a good thing her sister made it out of the wreck alive without her we would all be lost.

    Why he took you this early we all just do not know touched me. Perhaps God also feels the need of good person thus it happens at early early age. (Report)Reply
