Elegy for a Beloved Teacher by Rachelle Allen
Sad Poems writing prompt entry

You were there when others just promised;
I basked in the warmth of your smile.
In your eyes, I was special;
you helped me see it, too.
Each day my heart grew
as you showed love.
You healed me.
I miss

Writing Prompt
Sadness has overcome us all at one time or another. Either caused by a relative or close friend's death or from the girl or guy that broke our heart or just life in general. We all handle situations differently, some good, some bad. This contest gives us the ability to explore this. Your poem can also play into other emotions that are common to writing like this such as anger or depression.
