11 years

11 years since you’ve been gone.
Your soul was taken way too soon.
A young 15-year-old boy, you were.
Out with the guys, excited for Eid.

With speed and a roundabout,
the car lost control,
Poor young boy, in the back seat,
Flew from the rear window, out on to the street.

For 11 years this days has been carved
On the aching hearts of your family.
Your friends eyes still drown in tears,
A young 15-year-old boy, you were.

I was young, barely 10 years old.
Didn’t understand where you went,
But the tears on the faces of everyone around me,
told me you weren’t coming back.

Rest in Peace, February 8th, 2003
