When

When he dies

no hearts break

he has no face

no origin

no past

no place

no one knows him

he walks the

streets

alone

that strange something

you didn’t know

until

you took

one good look

you sensed something

was there

it was

that you would

want the same

for those who

loved you

fulfilled when

no one gives love

when

no one knows

you

you walked

by

and they

didn’t know

your name

isn’t that the way it should be?

no one leaves

nothing taken away

nothing lost

no happiness destroyed

no hearts broken…

when no one loves you

hearts are never

never

broken

how can that be bad?

how can that be not

good?

love is

you didn’t

bring harm

to

a

single

soul…

you had become

a

true

friend

without

anyone even

knowing

you had come

and gone

so silently

without

a trace

so softly

so quiet

you could

hear

the pin

dropping…
