There were people of great influence who died lately. Gifted men and women shared their passion in life and marked an unique road. Their songs and movies made our hearts leap from joy or despair.
What they said, we believed.
What they did, we wanted to do as well.
The time had stopped. We were convinced that they would live forever, or at least much longer than us.
Then something happened and we held our breath. We raised our prayers. We thought that somehow, death would get lost somewhere and never find them.
Some got to say ‘goodbye.’ Others were just swept away like a leaf.
We cherish their memory; we adorn the work of art left behind.
I was an atheist, but not anymore.
