I´m sorry

I´m sorry

A Poem by Johanna
"

I'm sorry you died last night I´m sorry your family got the call I'm sorry they stole your life For no reason at all

"

I'm sorry you died last night

I´m sorry your family got the call

I'm sorry they stole your life

For no reason at all


I know you wanted to grow old

See every exotic place

They hit us hard and cold

We all thought that you were safe


There is a stream of candlelight

On the ground where you fell down

There is blue, red and white

For you all over town


Everyone's talking about you

You didn't know all of them

People walked down the avenue

Singing the national anthem


You were just here

Nothing of this makes sense

They´ve captured each tear

With a big camera lens


The headlines are bold

Everyone wants to know

If it's true what they're told

If hatred can reach this low


Soon your name will be known

And they'll put flowers down

Stand by the memorial stone

One year from now


You didn't deserve this

The bullets from these men

Now they´ll always miss

Since you are in heaven


Only days have past

It seems like a nightmare

We lost you so fast

All we have now is prayer


Now the nation's plan how to react

They don't really know what to do

There´s nothing but hatred behind the attack

and nothing will bring back you


Minutes of silence, a red rose

For you and those left behind

New stories about heroes

That in times of crisis were kind


How we will recover from this

No one can envision yet

But we will take back Paris

and we´ll never forget


I'm so sorry you died last night

I hope you see us here below

Our flowers and candles won´t make it alright

But I just thought that you should know
