Waking the dead

Poem about a person who is dead yet wide awake...


1. Waking the dead


I hear the screams and crying all day all night,


And I cannot sleep; there is no peace inside.


Someone is waiting for her till the end of his life,


Someone is praying to send him back for one last time.


I wish I could do something to take their pain away,


But I cannot feel my hands as I am lying in my grave.


Please leave me alone, I will share your prayers,


Your friends are in a better place, please do not care.


For so long I have been trying to stay in my tiny cage.


Now I fear, I may never get out from this rotting stage.


There is no one lying beside me but I could not let it go


Before I am stuck here forever, father, take me home….
