You died; the doctors gave up hope
I am devastated, broken, brother
It could have been my tormented soul instead
God took you, the wrong man, and left me here.
Spent time together talking nonsense
Are those days gone and buried forever?
Will there be no repeats of those times?
Working extra hours to pay the loans
Neglecting ourselves, for our wives and children
Till wrinkles, grey hair reminded us of time running out.
Looking a pale grey shadow of your self
Doctors said the disease has claimed you
And it’s today, maybe, tomorrow, can’t say.
Here on earth for infinitesimal time
Here we met in the interregnum of birth and death
And then you faded away and died.
