The next few words that she said
Told me that soon he’d be dead.
Each word hit my body: bullets
Each sound blew me sideways: explosions.
But now that he’s gone he’ll be with her
With her to live with forever.
But will they be friends in heaven
Or will he just treat her like he did
Back on earth and
Will she want to accept him?
It’s anyone’s guess but nevertheless
They’ll both be up there together.
I tell myself: be persuaded
That they can live as young lovers
So they’ll never discover
How their love for each other
