Forever Stay in My Heart

From Chicken Soup for the Preteen Soul

Forever Stay in My Heart

In loving memory of Cassie L. Sweet

It was late when I heard the phone ring
I didn’t know then the grief it would bring.

She was killed by one thoughtless mistake
That a few of her friends decided to make.

I can’t understand what they had been thinking
The driver of the car she was in had been drinking.

All I do now is think about her and cry
And ask myself again and then again, why?

I cherish all the memories that we shared
And remember how much she loved and she cared.

She is gone now, and yet it’s still hard to part
So that’s why she will forever stay in my heart.

Jillian Eide, sixteen
