7 Others
Our eyes still slide past you,
refuse to see. Our focus
blurred by other tears.
You are all the dripping wax
from the candle’s flame--nothing
more, the echo
from the lone bell’s tolling.
If you had lived,
you would have had a story
to share with your children. Even now,
I have forgotten your names.

Wonderful. Whenever people talk about Kobe, his daughter, and the 7 others, I wonder how the family of the 7 others must feel about this.

Thanks, Wjames, for explaining the context. Am not that much into American news. In the light of that explanation, a sobering reminder.
Wonderful, of course.
I appreciate the comments. Thank you, guys.
