Not You?

Not You?

I heard that someone died – and it was you.
I’m sorry now to see the news was wrong.
I’ve dealt with disappointments – not a few.
I heard that someone died – and it was you.
I filled with hope on that engaging cue.
Thus is my current disappointment strong.
I heard that someone died – and it was you.
I’m sorry now to see the news was wrong.
