Her Last Breath - Poem by Petra Soliman


I have tasted sorrow
I have swallowed agongy,
But today I lost someone so dear,
A part of me has been taken away,
As she collapsed and gave her last breath,
I stood screaming,
There was nothing I could do,
She had given her last breath infront of my eyes,
I screamed,
While she took her last breath,
I cried,
While she took her last breath,
I lost myself,
While she took her last breath,

Laying lifeless infront of me,
I did not know where to turn,
Though I ran to the sea,
My scream be heard in the depths,
My tears spread the waves,
This pain tearing my apart from inside,

A best friend, once in a lifetime companion,
A baby so innocent, so joyful, playful,
With eyes of care and love,
She has fought for three days,
Doctors were amazed,
Though we brought her home,
She gave her last breath in her home,
Where she belongs among family,
A spirit of child has left.
