The Mourning (Benazir Bhutto)


The grim colours of our mourning
rise in a flowery mist
and form a beautiful image of Her
a breathing,
boldly smiling image...

and it's very difficult to shake that image off from memory
it's very difficult to let go of our colours of mourning...

poet Robert Browning

After

Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
