My beloved

I take a seat beside her

Caress her calmly

I feel her soft cheeks and lips

By my rough hands

 

Seeing her trembling lips,

I put my hands and touch them

She tries to utter something

And I hear only the fragments of the words

 

I can do nothing but stare at her

Her empty eyes try to say something

Her gestures and movements are shaky

And I cannot understand them.

 

She finally breathes her last

I stare at her eyes devoid of life

Neither tears fall from my eyes

Nor smile appears in my lips

 

Totally shocked and devoid of expression

After my emotional strings tingle

Teardrops fall slowly,drop by drop

Just like the raindrops fall from a dark sky

 

That’s when I realize that

My tears are falling

And I’m crying

For my beloved lives in this earth

And breathes

No more.
