I Remember Well
with eyes full of tears
how his reddish face changed into grey in an instant,
how his eyes gone blur,
his mouth distorted slightly
and his body stopped functioning;
the man I loved most,
the father who gave me more than love
my dad, my idol died in front of my face.
with eyes bursting with tears
as I answered the phone,
with a sombre voice informing me about her,
the woman with beautiful eyes,
striking coloured red lips,
an attractive face to go with it;
my mother was dead,
and I was three thousand miles away,
gone without saying goodbye,
my eyes are still bursting with tears.
my sister in excruciating pains,
lying in bed in front of me,
as the cancer was eating her slowly,
devouring her essence;
an only sister who loved me so much
cared and took care of me,
somehow my eyes doesn’t seem to stop crying,
do I have any more tears to shed?
the last time I’ve talked to my brother
the only living person in my family still alive,
yet we haven’t talked,
and my eyes are overflowing with tears of grief,
he is there,
while I’m here,
two siblings at war,
a battle which none of us will win
yet we both shall lose.
Remembering well this instant
with tears teeming out and dripping on my sad face
as I write this…….
