In Your Heart ( Death is Not Goodbye)


Every road ends somewhere
Like the sun rises and sets
Even the greatest of rivers
Shall dry and lose its might

Happiest when someone is born
Will crawl, walk and then pass on
Like a flower that blooms in spring
And wither as the summer comes

Though the cycle is a bit unkind
Humans are blessed with memory
Where joy is stored even the pain
The joy of living, pain of losing

Loneliest when someone depart
As those who’ll be left behind
Struggle to cope and accept fate
As they shed tears and mourn

But death is just a word
Term to describe the absence of
Love ones can live forever
If we’ll let them reside in our hearts

The love we have for them
Won’t fade, rather remain
Keep that love, keep it at heart
It’s where they’ll forever live

Hush, do not weep, no one is going anywhere
Unless you let go and forget to remember

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.

With this poem, I again remembered my grandmother who died last July. And when I think about that, I still weep.

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