I knew you for a second
When i walked into your room.
Little did i know you were approaching your doom.

I saw you again,
But it wasn't a happy day.
You were lying in a casket,
You had passed away.

Though your face was peaceful
Everyone else's held despair.
I didn't get to know you,
It was so unfair.

I watched my mother cry
And saw my brother's eyes.
They held the pain
I could never display.

I tried to show sadness
But i was so confused.
How could i miss someone
That i never even knew?
