I Didn’t Get to Say Goodbye

Published by

I didn’t even get to say GOODBYE
Why did you have to go?
I hope you’re happy wherever you are
I will always love you so.

I’d try to copy eveything you did,
you were always so good.
I looked up to you every day,
I’d be you if I could.

I remember we’d play the same old game,
I’d always try to cheat.
You’d always sit in the same old seat,
I’d always try to take your place.

You meant the world to me and my mom,
we’ll love you forever.
I remember we’d always watch the same old film,
Fried green tomatos.
You meant to my mom the most,
she was ever so strong.
She had to be tough for the whole family,
your leaving us was wrong.

I didn’t even get to say goodbye,
why did you have to go?
I hope you’re happy
wherever you are.

  1. Hi,I'm Paige Jacobs I'm the one who wrote this poem.
    I wrote this poem for her because I loved my grandma very much and she left with out saying goodbye . I wrote because I was kind of mad at my grandma for leaving me behind without saying goodbye ,now when I read it I get
    mad at myself for writing because I know my grandma can see

  2. Hey erm..
    I don't know what to say apart from that poem seems to have made way to much sense for saying someone else wrote it.
    My grandad died about 2 months ago i think its now and he died one night in hospital before I had been and had chance to see him, whereas everyone else had
    thank you because now I know it's not just me that feels this way

  3. I'm taking that this poem was about a sister or brother dieing don't know if i'm right but trust me even in death one never goes away as long as your heart still feels them!!!

  4. Dam i wasn't far off but hey sweetie your grandma is probably wishing she had that chance to tell you good-bye and with this poem it was her way of inspireing that good-bye between you both so you can look at this poem as a negative or a positive manner but in my eyes I see that she was who held your hand as you wrote it.

  5. When I read this poem I thought about my best
    friend that died about a month ago. I never got to
    say goodbye to him. I love and miss him so much
    and this poem meant a lot to me. It explained
    exactally how I feel.
