When People Hear That You Are Gone

When People Hear That You Are Gone


We were slapped an alarm to ring

Our childhood was it was good at times

When did we get to spread our wings a little

We did some right but we did do some wrong

I thank You Lord that I was blessed to know You


During our tween years sometimes acted a fool

Sometimes we’re under sometimes we’re the Dunker

Life is hard it seems even for those who are young

To Do Lists for the children never seem to get done

Many say that they saw you shamed but never came


Names and dates written in stone have always drawn attention

The lives we have lived did we draw any accolades at all

Who will actually know even fewer will really give a damn

School mates, work mates, even family, who even notice

Dim light in dim light out, are we just a “who” when gone
