Passed Away

you didn't pass away
passing away is gradual
for those who see a light at the end of the tunnel
for those who know their time has come

but when you were living, and vibrant
you didn't pass away
the grim reaper himself had to get his hands dirty
and he took his pointed fingers
drove them straight through your flesh
attacked
                your heart
he punctured you
and left
taking your life with him

you didn't pass away
you were robbed of life
he took it from you
no, wait, he took you from us

no, you didn't pass away
it was a violent theft
and the world was robbed
