She Was Here

She Was Here


DEATH? she came

this time, she smiled at me

She brought her whole family along

yes! of corse! she did!

SORROW? he was present

PAIN? he even boosted the most

he told them of how he won our hearts

Yes! DEATH she was here….

 

DEATH? surely she came

this time, without pity

yes! my doors where shot

but she used the windows

she sneaked the twins in

GRIEVE and SADNESS

she came with a gift

TEARS…..a packet of it

she shared it round….

oh!..how I hate her gifts!

AM telling you, DEATH she was here!

 

 

DEATH? I just told you

she came

NO! not visiting, she stayed

she said she had to see the whole neighbourhood

as I begged,she grew ANGRY

I watched her,

she asked that big bird to fall

YES!, the one that carried humans.

 

DEATH? No! she didn’t listen

On bent knees, I begged her

as usual,she turned deaf ears

my plead fell on earth, so I hid

I covered my eyes

watched the bird fall, between spaced fingers

But i said my prayers

silently thou

because DEATH?she was here!

 

To all those whom death visited when she the big bird fall.I pray you find comfort,peace and rest.
