I wanted to help her,
But didn't know how.
I wish I knew than
What I know now.

She used to be happy,
On top of it all.
Her life was going great
Until her luck took a toll.

Her friends all left her,
Her good days went bad.
I wish I would've helped her
When her happiness went sad.

I wanted to help her,
But failed at my tries.
I wish I could've helped her,
Huged her through her cries.

The darkness grew longer,
And she prayed for dawn.
But before it could reach her,
She was gone.

I wish I knew than,
What I know now.
I wanted to help her,
But didn't know how.


The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this poem after reading the book Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. I hope that after people read this they understand that anything they give can help.

That was a very nice poem. I was moved by and the book you were inspired by sounds like a good one. I will have to read it sometime.
