The Death of a Loved One – Jelilat Adesiyan

I

The Death of a Loved One
An emotional wreck
A collision of grief
The Absence
The guilt
The tears

The ones they leave behind
They tear
They fight
The ashes left behind
Condolences
Sympathies
A world of ir-repair

The Death of a Loved One
A world of ir-repair
An emotional wreck
Sympathies
A collision of grief
Goodbye dear.

II

The tears blind me
Blurry figures shaking hands
A wake
A rush of tears
I’m so sorry
Words

Shaky hands
Whispered words
Death is done
The living must live
The guilt has come
Life must be lived

Remembrances
Anniversaries
The shroud again
Flowers at the grave
The pied piper must pay
Love
