Have You Known Someone Who Was Dead? - Poem by Jordan Simon

Have you ever known someone,
Someone who was dead.
They would talk to you,
But nothing would be said.

They speak to you about life,
“Life, you shouldn’t waist it.”
You listen to them for the time,
But then you loose it, bit by bit.

They leave you in a week and you think,
Think of what they had to say.
You believe it and follow it, but
You will go back to your ordinary way.

    When I read this, it's as if it should be sung. (p.s. you mean 'waste' the verb,
    rather than 'waist' the noun?) Lyrical.
