No one but my family and friends knew me.
And no one else will know me.
Because I died.
I died a long time ago,
But it feels so short.
I had a mother and a father,
And I had her.
My little sister,
My mother told me to take care of her,
So I did.
My family couldn't help when our parents died.
Some didn't want to.
So I made sure I looked after Setsuko.
I bought all the equipment,
We even bought our little house.
And I smile every time I think of her.
She'd sweep the floors,
Pretend to make me grand dishes,
She'd even welcome me home,
With her hands clasped together and a raggedy old cloth on her,
Pretending to be a housewife.
Things went wrong and I had to do terrible stuff.
I had to steal.
I had to lie.
I lied to her.
I was caught stealing once and I shall never forget her face.
She looked so sad and young.
And so innocent.
But after that,
She gave me a smile,
And told me it would be ok.
Then she got sick.
I tried my hardest to get what I could.
