We were on a bus when I saw this beautiful girl
with eyes glittering like diamonds.
I did not believe in love at first sight before,
well, that very moment I was a victim.
I could not refrain from looking at her,
our eyes met for a second and she smiled at me.
I was eager to talk to her but the bus was full,
with no space to sit or stand next to her.
She outshone everyone in my eyes,
I already imagined her as my girlfriend.
This was strange and weird
because it was the first time seeing her.

Suddenly we heard a sound,
the bus crashing with a truck.
Everyone became quiet in a second.
The noise of the passengers faded,
then I spotted her covered in blood.
Oh no, she was injured, all of this happened so fast
I was not able to believe it.
I felt like I was dreaming.
The bus stopped, a few passengers were hurt
and sadly she was one of them.

An ambulance was called
but she and two boys were left behind.
The paramedic shouted,
β€œTime of death 21 July 2018 12h05!”
I was too late; I saw a hearse instead.
I wished I had already told her that I liked her.
I was too late, though she was just a stranger
I felt like I’d lost a family member.
I could not believe it was my first
and last time meeting her.
I was too late,
she was already with her ancestors.
