Farewell

AUTHOR’S NOTE : On D’verse there was a post about Japanese Death poems, how the monks and literate people would write their last words or messages. I was so inspired by it that I  thought of writing my own Death poem.( I am not dying or anything just how would I say Farewell to my loved ones.) When I thought of “my Loved ones” the first person that came to my mind was my sister. She is 4 years younger than me and I love her more than I love myself but the thing is, my love can never be equal to the love that she has for ME. When we were kids I once got a bad cut on my chin, it needed a few stitches. So when my mom took me to the ER ,the ER nurse stood there with the medical kit and asked my mom who is the patient, cause both of us ( me and my sis) were crying so hard as if both had a cut on their chins and they both needed stitches.That is her love for me, that even though I was the one who got hurt but she felt it as if it was she. I won’t say I love her to the moon and the back because the love we share cannot be measured by anything.

FAREWELL

There I lay on my broken bed
Like a princess from the fairytale we once read
Your tears splash upon my face
Like dew drops on wet leaves in summer days
My soul aches with the sound of your cries
I wish I could hold you tight and tell you it’ll be alright
Just close your eyes and think of all those times
That meant nothing, but were one of a kind
Warm fingers tingle the lifeless hands
Cold lips yearn for a kiss before it all ends
My mind is in a whirlpool trying to find a way
For the little words that I never get to say
“I love you, I’ll miss you and this’ll all be okay
I’ll be always be with you for every sec of every minute of every day”
