it has lasted long enough
moaning and sighing resignedly
like a melody …. but sounds poignant
the time almost stopped
“stay with me Ning” I said
but the death pressed his chest
unplug his suffering
and there’s a smile on his face
which been missing for nearly two years
might be the best … for you
and I turned away
took the pictured of your last smile
where the stories of our friendship stored
Dedicated to my best friend ‘Ning’,
who fought against throat cancer for almost two years.
Sad of losing you but also relieved that you freed of pain.
You will always be in my heart my dear…. always.
