A Part of Me

This is a place to publish all my poetry that I've written since junior high school. The ones I wrote first will post first and you probably will be able to tell a teenager wrote them. HA. But as they progress I hope they became more insightful and even inspired. Some have definite themes to the writing style, flow, or continuity that I hope people will catch onto.

Think of Lori

This was written following the death of a classmate - Lori Stallmann

For so many of us it doesn’t seem real.
We choke up when we try to say how we feel.

She was shy but outspoken in her own way.
Now that she’s gone, we’ll miss her every day.

She was a true friend to those who really cared.
She seemed to always have fun and her happiness she shared.

We’ll remember the way she was…smart, understanding, and kind.
To many people another friend like her will be hard to find.

She was taken away so young but we know it was a tragic accident.
And to her family sympathetic wishes are sent.

We’ll have to let go but for some it will be hard
‘Cause her memory lingers on.
Her spirit will always be with us
‘Cause she was a good friend for so long.
