Someone Else

By amysz

(In Loving Memory)

When you died
I was the one to write
a piece about you
for the paper

It should’ve been someone else

I barely knew you

You would be 23 now

I’m still friends
with your best friends

They still wear those
green bracelets with your
name on them every day

I wasn’t even given one

It should’ve been someone else

They write on your Facebook page
I guess that’s what friends do

I haven’t written to you

It should’ve been someone else

I remember when the accident happened
I thought, Why would it be you?
I knew you would have enjoyed
and appreciated life more than I did

It should’ve been someone else

My mother pushed me into
writing that article
It’s not my place, I said.
It should be someone else

She said, nobody else is going to,
and no one else would have.

It could never be
somebody else

That isn’t how life works.
That isn’t
how it works.
