May Death Not Do Us Part

Poetry By: Joy Evans

My school raised a bunch of money in order to make a bench in my brother's honor. We had a little Carimony last night and this is what I wrote.

No one will ever forget you

You will always be missed

Your friends, your family

You will remain in our hearts.

I was nervous to see who would show up

Random people who I neglect to know

People wanting to do what is popular

If only that wasn't grieving for you.

I'm glad it was just us

Everyone who you touched

Everyone who actually cared

Everyone who still does.

People I have not talked to for years

Gathering all in one spot

To remember you in the best way that we can


I have not cried like that for years

It felt like the day you left all over again

Minus the numbness in my soul

Raw, shattered pain.

Take this bench as a token of our gratitude

For being a part of all of our lives

In sickness and health

Even if it was just for a little while.

Your memory lives on

May death not do us part

Forever in our hearts

I shall look up to you.
