Painful Lamentation - Poem by Martins Akhoeneto

Now I know the colour of pain What many say is hard to explain It touches me with a cold arm Singing me lullabies, an alarm The one I hate to hear It remind me of what we share It makes me recap those early years And bring to me unending tears I hate that last earth That fell on your cold body Gone too soon I sang in regret He was my friend- my paddy Whose life battery went flat To leave awful pains in my heart.
