Victim - Poem by Frank Valenti

You've lived and you've died
A life filled with promise and unforsaking love
Never a doubt in your mind
For you knew the person you were to be
Taken so quickly and unannounced
The victim of a tragedy that noone could foresee
The good die young
They don't deserve the misery that is life
So you were stolen and brought to a better place
Leaving us grieving and lonely
You were not the victim
Given a gift of paradise
You captivated our souls while you were here
And now that you've gone there's a hole in the rest of us
We're the ones left here slowly dying
Suffering in your absence
We're the victims
And we will always miss you
Until we meet again...
