Shame on You, Death

Death you have no shame
You take as you please
And don't even ask
What we think
Or of the dreams
that we shared
You don't care
What we planned
to do together
This month
You just show up
And take
And steal
our loved ones
Shame on you death
Shame on you
For taking such young souls
With their dreams and their goals
With big hearts, and pure love
Shame on you for not asking us
What we thought
Whether we were ready to let them go
Shame on you for lack of manners
Shame on you for not showing yourself
And preparing us for such loss
Shame on you for the underhand fight
Shame on you, death

Rest in Peace, Arnold. Nind gi kwee baba.
