Worlds End

The muted smiles, the solemn eyes Shifting in their chairs No one quite knows what to say Death caught us unawares. A cruel miscalculation Death came for you too soon We thought we were invincible But no one is immune The cars outside keep driving The birds are full of song Why does the world seem to imply Its trivial you are gone No mention on the evening news No notice on the wall Does the world not recognise You were ever here at all You were not incidental This was a tragedy To the world you were just a person But you were the world to me
