Ewith Bahar (Indonesia. )


A necrology from your passing

Hits like ravaging earthquake

I stumble and try hard to firmly stand


Looking at our laughing photo

My fog-glazed eyes, shed the agonies

A deep sorrow that crushing my vein

No ways to cope with this bitterness

No more refrain in our song

Painful coda crashes the melody away

An afterglow if your smile haunts.

(December 2020)
