death is mysterious
it comes in like a fog
never knowing who will be next
swallowing those close to us in its path
it was a shock to hear of your death
you were a joyous person and great friend
the little pleasures entertained you well
and then you left this world so sudden
you arrived and left on the same day
it is almost like a dream
my mind is numb and do not know what to think
we had fun together back in the day
and now you are gone and those days lost forever
my mind's eye is now blind and i can't see you anymore
i know you will be great in the afterlife
taking your joy and innocence along with you
someday we shall see each other again
but till then we have different paths
