my dad had this friend

i remember him

and the memories were all good

that's rare when remembering someone

a little while after my dad had died

he was hospitalized for reasons

similar to those that killed my dad

liver problems and so on

but the friend lived

and he got out of the hospital

and he went back to school

and he stayed sober for over a year

things were looking pretty good

then one day he and his wife

were driving on the highway

and he fell asleep at the wheel

they crashed into the back

of a big semi-truck

she lived

he died

Moi, j'avais jamais rien dit. Rien
