First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.


i loved you from the start.
the way you gave me that smile.
not the fake kind, but real.

not fake like the movies, but real like the books.
sure they're both fiction.
but you made them seem real.
with your sandy brown hair.
and your nice blue eyes.

you made life itself feel real to me again.
i no longer felt pain.
or anger.
or depression.
i felt love.

and this feeling i felt.
this feeling i knew was real..
stayed with me forever.
even though you didn't.
