Live, love, laugh, learn, and then die

by Jennifer RIP Lesthat Hayden   Aug 14, 2007

Live, love, laugh, learn, and then die.
That's what we always said.
I never knew your life would go awry.
And that you would be dead.

The car did not have to halt
And you didn't have to go.
I know that it's no ones fault,
But why must I live in woe?

In your casket dressed in black,
I know that you will be interred,
And that you will not be back.
I could not even speak a word.

I can not stand the thought
That you and I are now apart.
My senses now distraught,
I feel the aching in my heart.

I feel sad and so afraid.
I just want you to be here.
By god I feel betrayed,
To me you were so dear.

You were my best friend,
But your death I can not deny.
Now you will transcend.
Live, love laugh, learn, and then die.

Please rate and comment this poem. Notice how all of my rhyming words almost line up. I was trying to get them as close as possible so there may be some added words in lines but that is the reason why. I was experimenting. ^_^
