September The 5th

While watching T.V. at 5 o'clock
While crying and grieving
over Princess Diana's
death
making coffee and toast
then sitting on my bed
listening now
about Mother Teresa's
death
remembering back
Princess Diana's words
in the New York Times, newspaper article
I know there's someone
else out there
that has something in common
like me
who has not had
A chance to speak out
and tell their story
when I received the news
about Princess Diana's
death
A co-worker told me
I stopped breathing, for a second
at work
Some T.V.'s are on
repeating the news
about Princess Diana's
death
my second dream
Ended
I'm disappointed and hurt
for my dream was
to one day, meet her
