Aiyena - Poem by Leani Auxilio
Stale words sift through the corners of my mind
Rebirth of memories left behind, Resurrection of ties that bind;
My heart is filled with echoes of the past,
My head full of questions, oh why doesn't anything last?
The evening sky is empty save for questions.
Blank stares meet my own as I pass by;
One bird catches my attention
As I edge to your side a last time.
Tears are carriers of grief,
Comforting flesh on their way;
The gentle winds caress my cheek,
They don't take my sadness away.
Unnerving thoughts haunt me for countless days,
Most disturbing was
When I saw you
Lifeless in where you lay.
(For Aiyena Kyra, a friend who died very young./November 3,2006. Rolling Hills Memorial Chapel, Cebu)
