Silent cry

I am at a loose end with a string of thoughts
creeping inside of my head.

I not sure I not sure
Whether to believe, I still can’t grip the fact

The news that I’ve waiting to hear
It arrive by your ear side and stung you

I not sure
I take a deep breath and start to remember
those treasure moment where you have the
privilege to be by her side.

At times you hear she was no well, your mind
are with her going through the difficult journey
now you hear she gone
your heart sank
knowing you now just have a faded memories

Now you feel a sense of lose
but a relieve that she is at peace
she fought hard
she fought a good fight
a great fighter knowing her illness
were already at a dead end

I not sure
I do appreciate my time more then ever
knowing my day are numbered
and a departure date may come sooner

But I still cry with not a drop of tear nor a sign
of anger, I am having a silent cry
a cry for her sad passing
