Who Will


When I die,
Who will cry?
When I leave,
Who will grieve?
When all is said and done,
Who will I be to anyone?

    WHO CARES?

    Who cares who will cry?
    But i might say bye-bye.

    If I knew you better i might grieve,

    And when all is said and done,
    at least we had a bit o' fun.

    thanks for sharing. i nice little poetic-exercise, this. for both of us. :) :) bri (Report) Reply
