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.
