R.S. Mallari

Parting Time

Blurring lights
Weary eyes, misty
Darkest of nights
Come immense agony

Body shivers
Will, turn to decay
Soul quivers
Strength taken away

Time took over
Youth out of sight
Only surrender
Run out of might

A stale vessel
Laid on a bed
Like an old well
The water's out, bled

One more drip
End is so near
Take the last breath
And Rest forever.

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

My Mother took her last breath November 25, 2009. She's well rested now.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
