The Casey Poem - A Tragic Loss

The Casey Poem

I am haunted by the memories

of the last time I saw you smile

We were ridin' dirt roads, cruisin' fields

Having fun and laughing all the while.

That same night we argued

I left and swore that I was through with you,

Now you're gone forever my friend

And there's not one thing I can do.

I wish I had the chance to hug you

And then to just apologize

To see you happy one more time

As I look into your brown eyes.

I wish I'd known how sad you were

And that your burdens were too much of a load,

I would have come running back to help dear friend

Smiled & held your hand as we navigated life's road.

I feel that I could have helped you

Or at least I like to believe I could've,

But you are no longer here my friend

If I had only known your pain, I would've

Done my best to show you

How much you meant to me

But there is no cause for "what ifs"

Because it will never be.

I feel some sense of comfort

Knowing you are now beaming in God's Grace

But I'm overwhelmed with sadness knowing

I'll never again see your smiling face.


This is a poem for my friend, Casey, who tragically left us on June 3, 2012. You are loved and missed by many Case. R.I.P. my friend.

      I would like to think that our loved ones look down on us from Heaven, and tried to convey their love as hard as they can

      I agree Philly. I wish I hadn't left without making things right, that's for sure. I also wished I had gone back afterwards and made things right, but I didn't do that either, so I have to live knowing I never got to see my friend again. I can only hope he knew how much he meant to me and his other friends.

      It's important to never leave a friend on bad terms. We are only given so long in this world, and tomorrow isn't a guarantee. Take time to squash all the petty arguments and always make sure you tell the ones you care about, just how much you really care.

      This is very touching. Poetry about loss always has a special place in my heart because i relate to it. Everyone that suffers from loss can feel what you feel, what i felt, when reading this. It teaches you to cherish everything you still have, every moment. It shows us that we shouldn't leave someone angry or upset because we may not see them again. I truly believe that in this life without these tragedies we would never have ecstasy. Its important to see the balance in everything. If we didnt eventually leave this place, being here wouldn't be special at all.
