On the day I saw you slept...I had a terrible dream, at your tombstone I wept.
A very good friend once told me...
"We never lose a loved one,
For even though they are gone.
Within the hearts of those who care,Their memory lives on."
So please embark with me on this journey as you go through your healing process...thank you!
Oh! How can I forget my dearest so fast?
When I never thought those moments to last.
The joys’n’laughters of our glorious childhood,
When mother’n’father still labored for our livelihood,
Oh! Your sudden exit’s a painful dagger in my heart,
When I never heard the call of mother earth.
No! I was too innocent…too innocent to know!
That it was the time when the west-wind doth blow.
You closed your eyes’n’I thought you were sleeping,
Not knowing that you’ll never wake up again breathing.
On the day I saw you slept,
I had a terrible dream, at your tombstone I wept.
A terrible dream on the day my sister died,
All the heavens’n’earths utterly went awild.
And the glowing sky went sober’n’looked ugly,
Groaning, moaning, howling, she echoed loudly.
Only for her, the precious lost, she wailed bitterly,
And the earth too was soaked’n’shivered silently.
O Sherifah! How can I forget you too soon?
When you always come to me on the moon.
Reminding me of the day you laid to rest,
I know I shall always be your very best.
When soon, I am there together with you in bliss.
So sleep…sleep soundly my dear…forever in peace!
