a prayer for a friend

a prayer for a friend

A Poem by sette

for romil: may you be in peace


In the casket,

Your eyes were morose.

I know you are not in peace

My friend.


A lot of questions rise,

People talk about you

For two days now,

They don’t know the real story,


Yet they malign you,

Spread dirty rumors

Make up stories

Without knowing what is true.


I learned that the

Last part to decompose

When we die

Is our ear.


I know that you have

Listened to all those stories

And it made you sad,

Can’t believe that there

Were tears in your eyes.


Your body is lifeless,

But your soul is troubled,

It is lost and confused

With that I offer a prayer


Be comforted my friend,

Seek solace in our prayers.


This October 6

You should have turned 46

We will sorely miss you.

Oh, how beautiful. Speaking to the ear and the heart of a friend after the end of their life.

Mythical in its reality.

You're more than welcome! :):)
Ang bata pa rin niya.Nakadagdag iyon panghuhusga ng iba.Be strong kasi lalong hindi mapapayapa siya kung pati ikaw ay bibigay.Ipagpray natin siya palagi.Pero kahit wala na siya andito pa tin siya sa puso natin.

Dang...the death is sad, and the story left in its wake even sadder. Full emotional expression and great writing is sometimes cathartic. So sorry my friend. Great writing though.

always a pleasure sette.. always... Neville
Profoundly sad.
Whatever happens to us--or those we love--praying is always a good idea.
Beautiful poem!

I am sorry for your loss sette. May your dear friend rest in peace. I was always taught that you do not speak ill of the dead, as they can't defend themselves.
