Unexpected News…

I didn’t expect the news…

I didn’t even know you
you have never as a person been in my world

but as an entity you have always been in the background
with little snippets like an old film reel.

I of course knew things about you
and over the years heard many a story told

This news that has come today
has really come as quite a shock.

for someone i didn’t know
i didn’t expect to feel these emotions

i am sad that this has happened.
and yet there is still so much still unknown…
