A Lost Soul

~ To My Brother~

When I live in the darkness for days and nights I don't 
envisage to write a poem,but here I am crying over
the loss of my brother who died on Easter Sunday,
I stopped allowing my roses to come and sit by my side,
I left them those dozens of exotic colors to die,
I don't throw them away my living room with the china 
vase looks dead,even the colors have faded away,I watch 
my China table its on the verge of closing on itself,
just to get away not to breath from my grieving air.

Tonight I am in pain,my vision is overflowing with
endless tears,I am alone because my brother left me 
and went away,he didn't even say goodbye,I didn't hear 
him cry or even try to live as he knew he had to go away 
in silence,carrying with him his lung cancer disease.
He died alone on a hospital bed his heart betrayed him 
Why,he was still young 70 is not old,what was he feeling
we will never know,was he afraid,was he sad,was he 
suffering,he was screaming they told me out of pain,
he was struggling maybe wanting to remain alive to 
come back to see us at least one more time before his 
final breath will give up on him,was he delusional 
the whole morning till 6 30 PM when his soul became
muted,sad,as God wanted him to join his late brother 
mother and father.

My pain is not only I miss him,its in what state of mind he 
was in when he gave up, we will never know.
This endless emptiness he left behind will linger forever. 
Now only I can wish you a goodbye.My children & I
Will always Love you.

    Terry; This is so heartfelt, It is very sad to lose a loved one. My dad also died many years ago on an Easter Sunday. We have to think that whatever suffering they went through here on Earth, It was left here. and they went to a better place where there is no more suffering , or pain. God bless you always.....

    Wow, Therese... I'm a bit speechless, this was a very sincere poem of yours! I have two brothers and one sister and I can't imagine how it'd feel without them. My heart goes out to you... wonderful dedication!
