Ewith Bahar (Indonesia. )

Spread the love

NECROLOGY

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.
