Had I ever known the horror
These words struck around
As a kid it didn't click
What it would be if someone leaves
But as I grew I realised
The biggest fear was not the end
But the fear of loss
The loss that we had to bear
The loss that we give the ones who are near
It hits so hard today
The moment these words ping my ears
Everything around passes by fear
That no, it can't, it ever shouldn't
Why is life so small
What lies ahead?
What is about to befall?
Why does it all weaken our spirits to bits?
If the end is there then why comes this fear?
If the end is there
Then why don't my loved ones always stay near?
