Lowering Your Coffin

©

Published: January 2009

Rain drops trickling down my face,
as they wash away the tears.
I'll never forget that horrible place,
revolving around my fears.

Seeing your coffin,
as white as snow.
You were only young,
it was to early to go!

A weary day for,
a bad occasion.
Crying and weeping,
brings a bad revelation.

I run to your coffin,
falling down to my knees.
Why did you take him!?!
Bring him back please!!!

As they lowered your coffin,
I screamed out with hate.
Three words I've never said,
which was my biggest mistake!

"I love him!",
the first time I realized.
But death is unfair,
and there's no compromise.

We spread flowers upon your,
coffin as dark as death.
But just like you,
I'm now out of breath.

I had a family friend named Annesha. Her parents and my parents knew each other from primary school which means that me and Annesha knew each other from when we were babies. She passed on March 9th 2014 and I was one of the people that cried most because I was with her the night she passed - luckily I left before she passed. If I saw her pass away, I think I would've done something I regret. She went because of a headache but I forgot the exact word for it. I miss her to the bottom of my heart
