I will never forget that day, I was only five years old The atmosphere was somber, everyone sad and morose I stood in a building that I did not know Surrounded by faces of family and friends I could not comprehend why everyone was sad, yet I will always remember the black tears that were cried I remember a car ride to a place full of stones We got out of the car but I knew not where to go I stared at a blue colored box, shiny and long, with an american flag adorned on the top As I scanned the faces of everyone around I wondered where you were and why you were not found As they lowered the casket, it hit me just then It was you in the box, you had broken your promise to me, and were never coming back I screamed and I cried and tried to break free I was going to go with you since you were never coming home with me As reality set in, I gave up the fight Then my world went dark just like my light.
