A simple word taken for granted.
Goodnight, ill see you another day.
Unless death takes one of us away.
Dream another dream my friend,
it may be your last.
A last gasp will be your last living memory.
All i said was Goodnight,
never had a chance to say Goodbye.
What if death took me away tommorow?
Would you wish you had said Goodbye?
or would you remember the first time I said Hi?
Close your eyes tonight, look into the dark.
I hope you find the light of tommorow.
The night grows cold, my breath fills the room.
So many thoughts run through my mind.
why was i so blind?
I could have told you, told you that you were my best friend.
But now im reaching the end.
I regret it, but ill never forget the the good days.
I just want you to know......... it was fun.
I'll take a deep breath and Dream a final memory.
Goodnight my friend...

Nice Everett - a small reminder that we are not immortal and we do indeed take other people for granted. I made a New Year's Resolution that is next to impossible but its worth a shot - to try and leave everybody I know and talk to on a positive note.
Yeah, high hopes but I figure better tried and failed then lack of ambition altogether :O)

very good you realized you don't want people to not know how much you cared. they say you should live everyday like it's your last. Letting people know how you feel is something we should all do then not getting to say good-bye won't be so bad. I loved this poem.

yes, letting people know how you feel once in a while is important.
saying Goodbye will be hard no matter what, but knowing that you have told the person how you felt will be a goodbye in its own right.

Nicely written Everett. It almost made me cry bc something like that happened to one of my best friends. It hurt her so bad bc she didnt get to say goodbye. Im not sure if i should get her to read this or not. Probably not...she can very very emotional at times. good poem everett

ITS SO TRUE...AS LIFE ENDS AT D DEATH N SAYING GOODBYE AT D END OF D LIFE HAPPENS HARDLY.
SOMEONE HAS CHALLENGED ME I'LL REALISE A LOT N I'LL BE VERY POSSESIVE ABT HIM AT A TIME IN FUTURE WHEN HE MIGHT NOT BE THERE WITH ME...!
I WANT TO SEND UR POEM TO HIM AND WANT TO SHARE MY FEELINGS ABT HIM AFTER READING YOUR POEM...IF U PERMIT DTHEN ONLY.
