Somebody

Somebody said it was for a reason

Somebody said he is with God now

Somebody said he is in a better place

Somebody said time will heal all wounds

Somebody doesn’t say anything

Somebody isn’t a friend 

……… But somebody said, I am sorry

……..& sat quietly by my side

……..& somebody shared my sorrow

……..& held my hand when I cried

……..& somebody understood I will become someone new

……..& they promise to love the new me also

……..& promise never to expect the old me to come back
