At 3 am I got the news about your death
and thought it was a prank.
Then I read the text again
But saw it in double vision.
Am I dreaming?
I screamed and couldn't hear myself
But the sound waves travelled from a distance
and pierced my heart.
Am I having a terrible nightmare?
But at the same time, I got another message saying you left this world.
I sat on the floor and looked up to heaven
God, why? I questioned.
I was losing my mind.
Who will guide, protect and comfort me?
You were my everything.
Is life worth living anymore? I pondered.
Blood of tears ran down my eyeballs
As I thought about the enjoyable moments
We spent together.
No, it isn't true!
My hero father can't leave me now.
I screamed! Burst out and cried a river.
Suddenly there was a calmness in my heart
When I remembered your last word.
You were going to rest; you said!
Yes! Father, I know you are resting.
Rest in peace, my good father.
Forever in my heart.
