For my uncle.

The Man I Used to Know
Where would you be now,
if He hadn’t taken you away?
Where would you be now,
if you still walked this Earth?
Would you walk in big strides,
or in small inferior steps?
Would you finally be able to see,
or would blindness still cover your eyes?
Would you have been able to walk again,
or even recognize your family?
Would you be able to joke around again,
or be able to speak a word?
Would you be the man I used to know,
or just a hollowed shell.
