It didn't seem
Like he was dead
Pale as chalk
Still like night

Seemed like he'd get up again
So quickly so that I would jump
I wanted to leave
I wanted to hug mommy and daddy
I wanted to go outside and play
Not see that scary face of his

But still I stood there
Eyes wide
All the crying,
Praying around me
That I didn't comprehend

I said to myself
"I don't know him"
