Funeral


You left me in the chamber where
Death alone smelt.
I fear nothing in the darkness
Save your absence.
I am dead, motionless
Without your love, grace, care.

Longer than your fragrance
Sweeter than your smile
Hotter than your veins
Death walks around me.
I am dead, motionless
Without your love, grace, care.

I am buried in the vineyard
Seven footsteps of yours
Tears trickle down on my cheeks.
Angel knocks at my grave
And then a rain drop oozes into my coffin.
And drizzles me a secret
It is raining on the grave.

Love is my religion, love is my prophet,
Love is my prayer and poetry is my beloved.
You buried me where corpses speak
Nothing but of love
I fear nothing in the grave
But you are all alone in the rain.
