Life is what you make it out to be

I’m trying to put all the pieces together so I can figure out why it is happening
But there are moments in life that you can never understand
It’s confusing and heart breaking, and when your heart cries for help,
No one even notices it, like you don’t even exist
Death is the biggest tragedy in someone’s life
It just takes the person away without leaving anything behind
Not even their memories, as they start to disappear as time passes
Truth can hurt people’s feelings
But at the same time lies are worse
They can destroy people’s lives without even realising
Living your life by denying the truth can leave a permanent mark on your heart
The mark that would never allow you to be happy again
As you feel like you can never trust anyone
I sit there looking at the pictures and remembering the memories
The memories that bring that smile back on my face
As if I’m reliving them and that he is here with me
I wake up one night calling his name, wondering if he is okay,
I see him every time I close my eyes; he is sitting there smiling at me
It makes me miss him more and more each day
I know that people come and go
And you should never cling on to someone
Because they will let you down, not everyone manage to keep their promises
But sometimes I feel like I can’t let go, like I am nothing without that person
I wonder if I will ever get chance to see him again
If he still remembers who I am, if he still loves me the way he used to
I just wish I could have him back in my life
When I first heard the news I was in shock,
I couldn’t bare thought of seeing another day light without him around
There aren’t words that could even describe how I felt.
People say he only moved from one life to another, but they don’t understand how it feels to lose someone,
You wouldn’t careless whether there is another world,
They not in the same world as you anymore and that’s what hurts you
Something’s that you experience in life,
Makes you appreciate what you still have left
But when you ignore your life, the world starts to ignore your existence
It’s weird how everything turns to be your enemy
You just feel like running away
You start living in the lie and avoid the truth
When someone pasts away, they say their ghosts are still around
As they don’t know what actually happens to them
They say every soul needs to feel the death that’s why people die
And some people need to get over their lost whether it’s hard or not
You can never win against death; it will defeat you no matter what!
What scares me about life is that everything happens suddenly
You can never expect to live for next day or still be round your loved once
You can lose your life in a blink of an eye
Sometimes something’s are best to be forgotten
It’s unbelievable what life can throw at you
You just have to be able to take it when it hits you
People say that most important thing in life is having faith and believing in it
But what if what you believed in was gone with the person that is gone
How canyou saythat there is more to life?
That whatever I havebelieved in can still be succeeded
I wish I could move on and let go of him
But as much as I want to I can’t do it
It feels like he is the one who is hanging on to me
I say that I have put my past behind me
But I realised that I haven’t …
I’m just deluded my self in order to believe that I have chance in this life

I really like the way your writing comes across very simple, elegant and restrained (To me anyway). It feels refined and thought out, it sets you apart from the masses in my opinion.

The only pieces of criticism i would offer is that on verse two, you use 'again' on consecutive lines and the same with verse 8, and the word 'you'.
Beyond that, minor editing and you're there.

Great stuff, keep it up.
