i have learned poem.

People come into your life and leave without prior notice. I met the greatest person when i was born and lost her when i was ten. My Aunt Leala was the best aunt known to manknid or at least to my cousins and me. She meant the world to me; something like a second mom.
It all happened one hot Saturday. She called me and asked me if I needed a ride to my cousin's party. i said "Yes; come pick me up now; I'll get dressed at your house." My Aunt Leala came and picked me up. She told me to go get dressed while she washed the dishes. I did. I was about to call my friend when I heard a loud noise in the kitchen. I ran in there. My Aunt Leala was lying on the floor; I called 911. Then I sat on the floor beside her until the ambulance came. I already knew she was dead; no one had to tell me. I found out later that she had a heart attack. The day that was supposed to be our happy day turned into the worst day of my life.
