why did you have to go?
the tears fall from my face.
why did you have to go?
no one can take your place.

and leave us behind.
i hoped you'd stay and forever be mine.
i will love you til the ends of the earth.
so save me a seat on gods turf.

This peom is good but it needs work. First, you need to capitalize the first letter each sentance. And in the second to last line I think it should be "I will love you 'til the ends of time." 'til needs an apostriphie and I think time helps the flow a little bit, but that part's just my personal opinion. I really liked the repition of the "Why did you have to go?" and you really put a lot of feeling into your peoms. I like that. Keep going.

Well... to tell you the truth... I only read this because you had commented on my photo and I thought I'd return the favor... But I totally loved it!

My friend died last year and I've written a lot of poems about it... You put so much thought and feeling into this poem that it felt like it could have been mine, it was so real.

nice job!
