In Memory of Kristin Kay Smith, 10/1/1986 – 12/29/2000

Just Because… (Original poster: Shelly L.) April 30, 2002

Filed under: The forum from the old website — Taryn @ 4:54 am

A few months after Kristin’s passing, Haley wrote the following poem entitled “Just Because…” and later shared it with me. She gave me permission to post it. I bet some of Kristin’s friends wrote poems too. If you would like to share a poem but don’t want your name attached to it, perhaps you can e-mail it to webmaster@kksmith.net or get it to Taryn with instruction to post it anonymously.

Just because I am quiet once in a while

doesn’t mean I am mad

doesn’t mean I am always that way

it means I need time to myself

Just because I have nice things

doesn’t mean I am spoiled

doesn’t mean I am rich

it means I live a comfortable life

Just because I get moody

doesn’t mean I am a $!^@*

doesn’t mean I am PMSing

it means something more is bothering me

Just because you haven’t seen me cry

doesn’t mean I don’t hurt

doesn’t mean I have forgotten or don’t miss her

it means I have cried alone
