You don’t know
You can’t know
Until you get that unexpected phone call
Or maybe your brother walks into your room and says
And you’re speechless
You begin to worry about his/her immediate family all while trying to hold yourself together and process what you’ve just heard
So many thoughts running through your head
And then you remember
The first time you lost someone forever
You’ll never see those people again
Maybe in photos
Maybe (hopefully) in a dream
But that’s it.
Life goes on.
