"Chris died yesterday,

I don't know how

They would not say"

She just said slowly, her eyes so grey

"Chris died yesterday"

 

"What!" I shouted in my mind

a shiver shuddered up my spine

Her eyes just stared, her face supine

Chris died yesterday?

 

Why did he die, why did he die

The whole thing seemed a great big lie

he was so young, he was so strong

he was just here and now he is gone

 

My mind replays the times gone by

When life and youth filled Chris's eyes

His smiles just sparkled in my thoughts

as though he is here and death, forgot

 

Was he alone when death came by?

Was he alone and silently died?

What were his thoughts and did he know

The time had come for him to go.

 

He was just eighteen

a whole life ahead

and now he is cold

and now he is dead!

 

Chris.....died yesterday!
