Theme: Death

Last Wish

We just cremated one of our destitute elderly!
Gazing at her made me think
What were her last thoughts?
No family around

She came to us from our lonely streets
Did she wish to hear the voice of her son?
Whom she always talked about!
We could not help
We never got to meet him!

We were there! Her substitute family
She was cold, calm with a smile
Her pyre lit, we left in the midst of smoke
Hoping, with her calm smile she might inhale the smoke
And with a smile, bid us farewell

May her soul rest in peace!
