Who I Was ~ Nombulelo Jili

if I should die, think only this of me
I was always there when you needed me
But you couldn't see

I've helped those who drowned
in a sorrowful sea.

I've seen a lot of things
Been to a lot places

I've learnt life lessons
That I will never forget

I was nice, kind , sweet then mean
I was unpredictable

sometimes I was misunderstood
They never knew the real me

But most importantly, I
lived a life, way different
to yours.

if I should die,
please remember me.
