who’s next


previous year the mother

this year the older brother

lay motionless

tears falling



o angel of death

why you come with no tell

no voice sounded

nor shadow seen

sudden the body trembling …. convulsively

passion fading to gray

breathe strangled by silence

a soul has gone by

and you…. walk away with strapping steps

slowly lost in the hymn of victory

while we wondered

who’s next

  1. My condolences for your loss, Mei. My thoughts are with you tonight. Loss of family is a difficult thing, especially if you were close with them. Don’t let sadness overcome you though. Rejoice and celebrate their life and remember them in the happy times you shared together. Hugs,
