Mommy went to Heaven, but I need her here today,
My tummy hurts and I fell down; I need her right away,
Operator, can you tell me how to find her in this book?

Is heaven in the yellow part? I don't know where to look.
I think my daddy needs her too; at night I hear him cry.
I hear him call her name sometimes, but I really don't know why.

Maybe if I call her, she will hurry home to me.
Is Heaven very far away, is it across the sea?
She's been gone a long, long time; she needs to come home now!
I really need to reach her, but I simply don't know how.

Help me find the number please, is it listed under "Heaven"?
I can't read these big, big words; I am only seven.
I'm sorry, operator, I didn't mean to make you cry,
Is your tummy hurting too, or is there something in your eye?

If I call my church maybe they will know.
Mommy said when we need help, that's where we should go.
I found the number to my church tacked up on the wall.
Thank you operator, I'll give them a call.

Silent Tear

Yesterday I
cried a silent tear for fear of losing you
Today I cried a
silent tear because you left my heart behind
Tomorrow I'll
cry a silent tear because I'll be getting over you....
Sad Poem by Ashley Matics.

I'm sorry
I'm sorry for those tears I cried,
I can't help but wonder why
Every time you looked me in the eye,
I think about it and want to die,
If you meant it don't just leave,
Please stay and comfort me.

"Holding On"
By: Chrystal Lindsey

Never again :

Tears fall down my face, they keep flowing one by one, the pain begins
to show, please tell me what i've done. the sad and angry part of me,
wants to just let go, i want to be completely free, of all this pain
and agony.

I can't stop the tears from coming, as much as i want to, if
only someone would listen, i'm crying out to you. please take my hand
and tell me, everything will be alright, say you'll never leave again,
then dad please hug me tight. i remember being at the door, when i was
six years-old, i sat there crying on the floor, as you drove down the
road. the years have passed, but the sadness still prevails, i guess in
time eventually, this broken heart will heal. but mom and dad you took
my heart, and broke it into two, but i guess it equals out to a piece for each of you.

No matter what has happened, i know your heart aches
too, even though the pain is strong, i will always love you....Sad Poems Written by Becca.


"I won't cry"

I see no reason,
I see no rhyme,
Why have I been left behind
alone to serve the sentence of your crime?

I've been put down and pushed around,
often finding myself on the ground.
I've had to push myself deep inside
and build a wall behind which I can hide,
hoping only too survive.

I see no reason,
I see no Rhyme,
Why have I been left behind
alone to serve the sentence of your crime?
Though my heart still beats and my lungs still breath,
I no longer feel alive.
I've sealed my feelings deep inside,

Now I wont scream and I won't cry tonight............

Sad Poem by Devlin.

I who is and was ...

Ships sail in the past as they turn to their last
Ways of a way are tearing this heart making it blast
What is and was, is all i have in my kind
Empty is the way of the wicked and insane in mind
Times come while my deepest asks why was and is....Sad Poems by FT.

The same old light and darkness ....

"I went to a party, Mum"

I went to a party, and remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom so I had a sprite instead.
I felt proud of myself, the way you said I would,
that I didn't drink and drive, though some friends said I should.

I made a healthy choice, and your advice to me was right
as the party finally ended, and the kids drove out of sight.
I got into my car, sure to get home in one piece,
I never knew what was coming, Mum something I expected least.

Now I'm lying on the pavement, and I hear the policeman say,
The kid that caused this wreck was drunk,Mum,
His voice seems far away.

My own blood's all around me, as I try hard not to cry.
I can hear the paramedic say, This girl is going to die.
I'm sure the guy had no idea, while he was flying high,
because he chose to drink and drive, now I would have to die.
So why do people do it, Mum knowing that it ruins lives?
And now the pain is cutting me, like a hundred stabbing knives.

Tell sister not to be afraid, Mum tell daddy to be brave,
and when I go to heaven, put "Daddy's Girl" on my grave.
Someone should have taught him, that its wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his parents had, I'd still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mum I'm getting
really scared.
These are my final moments, and I'm so unprepared.
I wish that you could hold me Mum, as I lie here and die.
I wish that I could say I love you, Mum
So I love you and good-bye.

A boy so bright, and filled with light,
He was only fouteen
Filled with love and comparrison
He was only fourteen
Had a way of making everything better
He was only fourteen
A happy face loved by so many
He was only fourteen
We miss you're laugh, you're love and smille
We know you are happy, and safe now
For the gates of heaven have opened so early for you
And you excepted you're invitation
But We will never forget you, and we shall be together soon
I know you will watch over all of us
And give us you're guiding love
We love you, miss you, and I'll see you at the cabin,
And in my dreams.........R.I.P Rory Howard Urness....Sad Poems by Ashley.

As I stood there, in that desolate place, observing
the minions of life, she appeared from nowhere, her
eyes, fixed on me, as if with evil intent. She
approached me and took my hand, but with no words. We
admired each other from so close, yet, it felt as if
she was worlds away. Her hair shone in the evening
light as if it were sewn from stands of diamonds, her
skin was smooth as silk, it was as if she was an
angel. I had never seen anyone like her in my entire
life. We stood there for what felt like an eternity.
She smiled at me, the temptation was too great, I
pulled her close to me and kissed her. It was a
passionate yet unruly kiss, it was so meaningful, yet,
it meant nothing.

The clouds gathered and soft rain began to fall from
the darkend skys. We ran underneath a tree, its old,
twisting branches covered with green, lush, leaves
shielding us both from the rain. We sat, and watched
the rain fall, as if they were tears being cried by a
god. She slowly opened her mouth and said to me in a
quiet, yet seductive voice, "If I die, will you mourn
my death?". I did not want to think about this, I did
not want this moment to end. I forced myself to say
"Yes, i would". She sighed and looked up at the tree,
looked past its braches, into the sky beyond, then,
she stood up and turned to me and said "I must leave
you, you will not see me again". She started to walk
away, but I caught up with her. "Why?", I asked, "Why
must you leave me?". She simply turned and smiled at
me, and quietly said, "We are not meant be, we are
different, we are not the same". I replied, "But our
love is strong, it has the power of an army, we can
defeat anything together, please, stay, don't leave
me." I fell to the ground, silent tears streaming from
my eyes. "Don't cry", she said, "life will go on, you
will forget about me and find another". "No !" i said,
"There will be no other, you are the one I love, only
you hold the key to my heart, without you, i am
lifeless, i am but a shadow of my former self, you
make me complete". She looked at me, and said "I will
always be with you, where ever you go, I will follow."
And with those final words, she left me. And as she
walked furthur and furthur away, I realised how lucky
I had been, to have an angel as my lover. And as the
sun set in the horizon, I got back up onto my feet,
and walked back to the tree. I sat there and longed
for her. I longed for her touch, her voice to break
the silence. But I was alone. I looked to the skys and
watched the clouds go by. I eventually got up and
began to walk away from the old tree that sheltered us
from the rain, when i saw a rose. It was blood red in
color, and stood out from the rest of the world. I
picked it up and looked at it, then I saw the blood. I
looked at my hand and realised that a thorn had pieced
my fingertip. I watched the blood slowly leave my body
and drip down my hand and onto the rose, splashing
over its wide petals. The blood reminded me of her. I
threw the rose into the distance, watching it fall to
the ground and settle in amongst some grass. I walked
back to the old tree and once again, sat down. I sat
there and thought. I thought about what my life would
be like without her.
I suddenly felt a cold object in my hand, I looked
down and there, in my right hand, the one the rose
thorn had pierced, was a dagger. Its blade was silver,
and sharp, the hilt was encrusted with jewels. The
handle was black, like the night, and at the end of
the handle was a silk scarf tied around it. It draped
itself around my hand, as if caressing me. I looked
long and hard at the dagger, thinking about everything
I had lost, and everything i would lose in the future.
I could no longer bare the lonelyness. I plunged the
dagger deep into my heart with all my might. The blade
piercing my skin and forcing its way through me. And
as I sat under the wise old tree, my lifeblood flowed
out of me like a raging river, its red color staining
the grass and all it touched. And as I died, I finally
realised, this is what its like to be alone....Sad Poems by Praneel Ram.


Death stole my only love,
It didn't let me say goodbye.
So in this world that killed you,
I sit alone and cry.
A pointless event, that often does occur,
It stole my only love
I say for death there is no cure.
Your big brown eyes I still so often see.
But now you're gone and all that's left is me.
But I will not abandon hope,
I will endure this pain,
I will survive in this cruel world,
Alone and full of vain.
So when I leave this filthy place
With enemies and hate,
I will unite with you my love,
For that is our fate....Sad Poems by Rita Katsnelson, Copyright 2000 Rita Katsnelson.

Silence Park

I live nearby a park,
But not a joyful one.
There are full of lonely trees and lonely grass,
As lonely as me.
The grass is so long,
Seems no one cares about it...

I was sitting there in the lonely park,
Was thinking about of finding a path,
But life seems don't have one.
Everyone just walk though the park,
But no one ever come for it,
Or even no one knows there is the park.
Everyone is happy,
Because they never knows this story of the park...

The park is lonely everyday,
It wants someone cares about it,
And it wants to know of there are any other ways.
It knows no one would care about it beside me.
We are best friends,
We both think people who has been left out should get together.
Nothing is perfect.

Life is sad,
It's full of loneliness like this park.
No one was waiting for me,
No one would come for me.
I thought you would,
But that's the order from God.
The grass is crying out sadness,
The trees are crying out loneliness,
Everything is just so sad in this lonely park.

Whenever my heart was torn,
You make me smile.
And now you're gone,
Which makes me cry.
I wrote you pages,
But there were no replies.
Where are you?
I am looking for you.
But this is the result...

I went to the airport with you.
I remembered you told me to wait for you.
Oh well! You're gone.
You're disappeared...
How can I carry on?
You said our love will be ever lasting.
What a liar!

You just walked away without saying a "bye"
That was the first time you ever told a lie.
The only one can keep my strength alive has gone.
And I'm now trying to find other ways to go on.
But I'm still;; waiting,
I'm still longing.
Though you're a liar....Sad Poems by Camille Chan.
