TODAY I SAW DEATH

Today I saw death
I saw grief shrouded by tears
Mourning loss of a human
Another soul was taken away
Today I saw clouds
I looked up at sky so bright
With sun shining upon humans on earth
But, then I saw earth
I looked back around me
I saw tears from people falling down
Soaking the soil underneath their feet
Bidding farewell
Even though knowing it’s too late to say goodbye
Then, I looked back up
Asking Him if He were being so cruel
Not taking my life as well
Rather to let me live in regrets
Regret of being so shallow towards death
Being so hollow towards life
I looked back down
Tears streaming down my cheeks
Shivering, bearing the pain all of my life

Today I saw death
Death is calling me
And the sun shines perfectly today
