Did you put on a smile?
Did you try to be so kind?
Did you hide your weary time?
While you tried to fit our style
Now that you’re gone
Do we love you for the lost cries?
Do we miss you for the lost time?
Do we judge you for the saddened lives?
While we try to walk your life
– Nim –
(Nimeshe Dilraj Madanayake)
A small poem I wrote in memory of those who chose to leave and those who we couldn’t save including my dear friend Austin
