I reach out my hand.
To feel the clouded emptiness.
And grasp the clefts of a void.
Fighting struggling and writhing in pain.
He passed from life to hereafter softly
Bereft of anxieties and the aches of life
A life well lived and a dignified end
As mourners recalled his moments of life
Stars and planets
Another fate He wrote
A discerning quiet prevails between the shores of our minds.
Like the morning calm which lulls on a beach,
Ravaged by an unforgiving storm all night.
Thoughts which rankle with memories of yore. Sights which look the same but yet no more.
There's a deafening noise.
In those solemn moments of silence
In a different time and a different place. Through twists and turns.
And quirks of fate. When I meet you and you meet me.
Hand in hand.
Face to face.
I passed from silence to heavenly shrieks
As a new world welcomed me in its arms
An umbilical bridge still holding two lives
And two souls breathed as one for the last time
