death is peace and silence golden
She was withering with pain and agony,
Pipes going through her nose,
Mouth a bigger one and drips all around,
She is senseless, no pain, no feeling,
Doctors declared, but she was in pain,
Outside world unknown, but her inner soul,
Pained, hearing her name called,
I felt she tried to open her eyelids,
Which were shut from a weeks long,
Ailment killing her in droplets,
Gnawing in agony.
All of us wished let her off in peace,
For only death can part her from the tedious life of the day,
The pain of the ailment,
The grief to leave the dear ones,
The fear of going to that unknown world,
To where you go without,
The sense organs
And then move on,
Will it be a journey of joyous pleasure?
Or will I be shunned,
As she fears so, she is gone,
Then we feel silence,
A brief calm, until we realize,
She is gone, no more.
Hopefully for the better,
May her soul rest in peace
