Its all about departure from a dear one , pain which is unbearable ..................

It's been thirteen years , but you didn't come

 

On your demise I was able to beleive what has happened,
Deep in my heart i had a faith that you would come back,
I never expected you to die,
Because I prayed to God then ( when you were on death bed combating meningitis ),
And God never unheard my prayers…..
Whats your father’s name ?
What does your father do ?
Questions like that horrify me, terrify me,
I am afraid of being confronted by our old house,
My day starts missing you and ends up doing the same…..
At that time I was eight ,
And now I am twenty one,
Its been thirteen years,
But you didnt come…

As I read this I felt so much sadness. This poem really spoke to me, and I simply loved it. I’ve read it several times now.
You’re such a great writer.

Deep in meaning, our death took away our love ones. Sorry for the loss.

Its not about dealing with the loss....Its the people who make your life terrible after God took away your loved ones
