Forget Not

Tear stained cheeks

Tailing sorrowed eyes

A price has been paid

Under dark night skies

The masses raise hands

Though thought is lost

Why were they taken?

Why was this the cost?

Where was the innocence

When the last stars fell?

They had such a light

And so many stories to tell

The light in the dark

Seems so far from reach

Forget not the lessons

Their souls have to teach

Remember the life

Hold firm to the love

Rise eyes to the heavens

To the stars above

I wrote this poem in memory of 3 boys at my school who made the horrid decision of driving drunk. Two were to graduate this year with me, but they are now gone forever, the third may never walk again. Please think twice about your actions. Thank you for reading.
