I was once alive

I was once a person
I was once alive

It may seem to be a long time ago
An eternity is a long time
A lifetime is short

I was once a person
I was once alive

I had feelings and friends and family
I’ve been in love
And I’ve cried

I was once a person
I was once alive

Do not soon forget me
You were my everything
And gave my life meaning

For I was once a person
I was once alive

I was once alive

Artist's Description

My best friend died and I wrote this for him. This was one of the harder poems I’ve ever written, but this one carries special meaning to me
