A SOUL DEPARTED TODAY AT PIET


A SOUL DEPARTED TODAY AT PIET

A soul exited Today to the abode of heaven
I could not recall his face as others say was a man

Known among his strange friends as a bonhomie
Torn in the mortar of all filial enemy

Upon his exit, all celebrated the pain of loss
No matter what it cost to him to edify such bliss

As all would die; none would be redeemed
Soul would rest in peace in the house of God

All we have is his memories so fresh
Like balm on a cut unready to dress

Pain of loss is the loss of gain
As we gather to bemoan him again and again

His mortal remains left to be decayed
One with the earth as lay on nature’s bed

A few started weeping; their tears wet the earth
His mother lied on bed as fortune forever mirth

A few got his photo to say a final Good bye
Friends wept so loud as if God has lied

Trembling limbs of father consoles the remains
That reached to destiny before its arrival

The tinkling tears of brother denies to get dried
He who slept him in nights now lying on death bed

All prayed God to keep his soul in peace
Let his memories remove all dirt of bliss

Last rite of exit yet to be performed
Last kite of a soul yet to be detached

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
