I Miss You: A First Look at Death
I Miss You: A First Look at Death

When a close friend or family member dies, it can be difficult for children to express their feelings. This book helps boys and girls understand that death is a natural complement to life, and that grief and a sense of loss are normal feelings for them to have following a loved one's death. Titles in this sensitively presented series explore the dynamics of various relationships experienced by children of preschool through early school age. Kids are encouraged to understand personal feelings and social problems as a first step in dealing with them. Written by psychotherapist and counselor Pat Thomas, these books promote positive interaction among children, parents, and teachers. The story lines are simple and direct--easily accessible to younger children. There are full-color illustrations on every page. (Ages 4-7)


I cry, almost out of breath

Never been one to deal with death

Its a part of life, it saddens me

I hear the bad news, it maddens me

Forever, my loved ones should be close

Can't see them leaving me to decompose

Immortals, can we only get a dose

Womb to tomb, that's what God chose

Can anyone live past the expectancy

We're all humans coming from pregnancy

It doesn't matter, we do right or wrong

Living is too short, not very long

For me to mourn, please don't bother

It had to happen to my friend's father

It hurt more, when it took my cousin

Dying and sleeping are somewhat kin

Why do we have to go so young

Its like air just started in a lung

They're in a better place, angels have sung

See them at crossroads, heaven has rung

Its like, I can't make it to a funeral

Used to souls I know alive, survival

Evil and hardships in the world buffering

Are we in the last days, suffering

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust

Bless the dead in the Lord, we trust

Although, it sounds spiritually firm

Somehow, I blame biblical terms

Garden of Eden, it shouldn't been a serpent

Eve could have avoided Satan's torment

Adam could have not followed in pursuit

Never should have eaten forbidden fruit

They were tricked, as if we're born in lie

Now, I understand why we die
