Death...
It's such an unusual thing.
Bringing people together,
Bringing back memories,
and bringing out tears.

Death...
What a funny feeling it gives.
To those closest,
To those furthest,
and those in between.

Death...
We all have to face it someday.
Nobody can say,
When you will,
When I will.

Death...
It makes you think of all you've done.
To those of past,
Those of present,
and not yet affected.

Death...
How does it influence your life?

**January 4, 2012
I wrote this after thinking about a girl from way back in middle school that died about a year ago. I realized that I was kind of a **** to her way back then, it really made me sad to think about because what it made me wonder if I somehow affected her life negatively (she didn't commit suicide so don't get that idea). This one immediately became one of my favorites that I've written.
