When I Say Goodbye

Author:

BeckyTP formally known as Rebecca Moraa is a student at Moi University Main Campus Kenya. My passion in poetry grew in primary school.

When I say goodbye
To the dearest on earth to me
Don't let me break down
Hold me still, calm me
It won't be easy, but try...

When out I shout to the dead
Please don't scold me
Try to understand the pain
Though it's hard I know
Because acceptance isn't easy either...

When the mound of soil hits the casket,
Please help me a hold,
So I don't follow the soil,
For it won't be easy to stand
Watching helplessly, as they cover it up.
