Oh Thy Death - Poem by Cyrus Diaz

Thy death comes
Peacefully like
The soft white smoke
That comes – unnoticeably,
In a minute or two,
Diminished quickly.
Life is but uncertain,
In just a second,
With just a snap,
With just a blink
Of an eye,
They barrowed life,
Gone by.
On this savannah
Where your blood was spilled
With much repent
Or grieve thy
Mother’s tears have shed.
Let thy death be
Upon this mournful
Ancestral field
Yet, never joy
Nor hope
Shall blaze upon
The nature’s eternal
Resting place.
Let that from
Thy noblest life
Give a view
Others may look
And from their witty
Lips thy rich innate
Life’s worth may
they speak.
With the rising
of the ardent sun
thy meek grave
upon the valleys plain
shall be looked up
by men who remembered
what thy life has done
though in this earthly
dwelling has
long been gone.
