Strong and optimistic
'Til the very last breath
You were our hero
We mourn your young death

Nobody saw it coming
As fast as a bullet
The shock drove through my heart
Just tore a hole right through it

Inspired so many
Put smiles on our faces
Now comes back to haunt us
As we seek comforting embraces

Smiles to tears
Dust to dust
All of our fears
We dared not to trust

But you're gone now
There is no denying
All are in anguish
All are crying

Goodbye to the young soul laughing at death

Goodbye to the cancer that put him to rest

Goodbye gentle fellow

And your lighthearted jests

We will all miss you

We will never forget.
Perfect for the poetry unit....

EDIT: It seems I'm suffering from loss anxiety because of Edd's passing. That kind of thing only happens with close friends and family members.
We had some short chats on my old account before he...bit the dust. I never got to live out my dream of seeing him in person.
This kind man was my role model; someone I looked up to. He blew away the clouds of my bad days. His success let me know that I can.
The Eddsworld series was lovable, but not quite so lovable as the mind behind it.
I could not sleep the night after hearing the news of his passing, and I couldn't stop crying all day at school. I felt nothing when Michael Jackson died, but this is ripping me apart.
I've never been so sad in my life.
Why did I procrastinate on my get-well art?
Now I'll have to live with the guilt.

I feel like there was something I could have done to prevent this tragedy.
...At least Tom and Matt are still around. I can't possibly begin to imagine their turmoil...

Don't you all see?  Edd truly was an angel, inside and out. His memory will always live on. For years to come. Even though he's missing...His world will ever stop spinning.

Maybe then I won't have to look up to people like Edd anymore and rely on myself, because now the pain is unbearable if I think about it too much.

i know how you feel. i just lost both of my grandparents to cancer about two months ago. i know it hurts and that you can't help but feel guilty, but you need to know there is nothing that you could have done. you being his friend probably brought more happiness into his life than you will ever know. and you will always have him in your heart- this i know. your love and support helped him through the tough months and maybe made his illness just a little more bearable. ALWAYS remember that. if you don't, the guilt will never go away and i don't think he would want you to suffer. you and the family will be in my prayers. :iconheartsplz:

I will do all I can to donate and help find the cure. It's what Edd and your grandparents would have wanted.

now this is a beautiful piece of work.

Rest in peace, Edd. no one will have a dry eye at the thought of you.

I also was suffering from loss anxiety over this. i broke down as soon as i got home and my mother had to take me for a long drive for a few people. god, i knew cancer killed and even some family members of mine have it but when it takes someone who was truly a wonderful person that i could say i adored...it hurts.

He never wanted to make us cry, but you just can't help it. This hurts more than words can describe.

When I saw the video my throat closed up and I trembled. I couldn't stop repeating "no"
I had a dream that night that the video was a cruel joke and I saw Edd at a convention like I have always dreamed. I gave him a hug. Then I woke up because I stopped breathing. I was nauseated and still shaking.

I think I was in shock, too.
