Can you see me, please?
I call out again and again.
There are so many people,
but my cries seem to be in vain.
Many are sitting next to someone sleeping,
all seem to be talking in soft whispers.
My wife and my children are crying,
the rest seem to be shedding crocodile tears.
I call out again to my wife,
she does not see me at all.
What is going on it is hurting me like a knife,
why am I being ignored by all?
Suddenly she gets up and comes near,
taking a few steps towards me.
I shout and shout but she does not hear,
This would make anyone angry you'd agree.
Some people enter and pass me by,
they almost touch me and I have no feeling.
A child walks through me without even a bye,
this scares me as to what is happening.
I glance at the sleeping figure properly,
and I get a shock of my life there.
It is me lying there dead to all and sundry,
I weep without tears wondering who am I standing here?
