Poem for Mya written by Meghan

Theme for English 1

In school we are taught that 2 plus 2 equals 4;
However, from you I learned much more.
Life goes on, round and round.
Life flies by.
Life changes and ends in the blink of an eye.

Nothing is ever guaranteed;
So live your life to the fullest.
Do not take anything for granted;
Some people have it much worse;
Beautiful babies battling cancer

I don’t know who I am without you.
It isn’t easy as the world moves forward.
Putrid pain penetrated the poor child’s body;
No one should ever have to endure what you did.
Hold your loved ones close; don’t ever let them go.

School doesn’t teach us life lessons;
Teachers don’t teach us how to cope with loss.
You taught me more than any teacher ever could.
You taught me to love, to live, and to value everything.
More importantly, you taught me to never, ever give up.
