I haven't talked to her in a while,
And now I can't.
I wish I would have stopped by to say hello more often.

She was so nice,
And cared so much about her students.

There's been a lot of deaths in my city lately,
they've all been fellow students.
I've never had to deal with a teacher's death before,
What am I supposed to be feeling?

I'm currently a junior in high school, and my school is from 6th-12th. One of my 7th and 8th grade teachers just passed away yesterday. She had cancer.

Thank you so much. I'm sure she is very happy.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
Life is about giving it your all even when you have nothing.

I'm sorry about your teacher. I hope she's happy where she is. This is a nice poem.
