Do Not Wait For Me...

Do not wait for me
Since I went away
For I cannot be-

After the first joy,
As leafs covered earth,
While the caress of heaven
Unexpectedly ends a birth

Do not wait for me
I will not return
Refusing to be-

Flower whithers to
Crumpled reflection
Beauty is no more
But a tiny fraction

Do not wait for me
I shall not retreat
Continuing to be-

With the last breath
Numbness comes gently
Making me immortal
Ensuring my death

Still you wait for me
I am already gone
Although I will always be-

-Your stillborn son…
