Finally... You are home,

7:27 pm.

You wonder if he is alright

You haven't heard from him since

2:15pm today

Finally! He coals.

His voice is weak and course

He's coughing

In the background

The sound of people walking away

He moans in pain

He cries

The first time you heard ever

You can tell

By his breathing and his tears

Something has just gone wrong.

He speaks weakly and says

"He's gone"

You think" who!?"

He says the name

His tears clogging his throat

You feel your heart stop

You loved him he's gone

Your friend is gone.

"He died in my arms"

Your friend says crying

"Shot to death"

Then the words hand in silence

Your next thought is.

As you weep softly

'Are you alright?"

"What happened to you'?

"I was shot in the leg"

Silent tears roll down your cheeks.

"They shot me killed him"

.You know who he means.

Your chest is pounding now

"This is the first tine."

"The first time you will hear me cry.."

He weeps

Still on the phone both crying

He says.."The ambulance is here"

He says"I need to go"

..You dont want to let him go

You know he could die if he didn't go

You silently whisper okay

You bite your lip

He says" I promise I will be alright"

You say okay chocking on tears

He whispers" I... love you"

I love you too rolls off your tongue

You both hang up you cry..

He calls you the next morning.

He's alright.

You're so happy to hear from him.

He silently whispers

.."He's gone nothing can change that.."

A tear rolls down your cheek

Two days before your birthday..

.Your friend dies

Goodbye Hiroshi...

I miss you.


Poem... true facts...

Lucas was shot in the leg.

This happened two days before my birthday..

Hiroshi did die.
