To the silent you (inside your coffin)

How do I let out a cry seeing your angelic face?
Woven by its intermittent desire to make me smile
Everyday, I would see you be dimpled in my room
Framed pictures of your memories etched
With all its desire still permeates my morning

I see you now, smiling but still
Still as the blue moon that will howl me to sleep
Will I ever sleep? Will I ever wake up seeing you?
The tears spring from mine eyes… they well
Like each colliding in unison anger
My voice is nowhere to be heard as they grieved
For you
But I mourn not, for in your death
In that silent state of you, I hear the empty
Sobbing of my thoughts, pained like
Dying my thousand deaths
For there, in the midst of your silence
I screamed, yelled and cursed at you
Of how my love grows stronger than
That oak wood where u lie still

They grieve, they bawl, but I
Cry silently while you silently take away
The feelings meant only for you
I believe in love,
While you believe in FOREVER
And forever… my love will stay with you
As they closed the remaining sight of you
I heard you laugh, while I choke on your
Silent laughter only me and you will understand
Only us will ever know….

To the silent you, inside your coffin
My soul, my heart is with you FOREVER!

“To all souls departed… may love linger until death seethes”!

Inspired by rico yan’s death!

this one reminded me of my grandmother, a tinge of sadness just passed through my veins which was then ruined by rico yan ;)
