My middle brother Frankie, passed on this week, to join my elder bro, ma+pa. 22.03.2007
Am feeling very sad and weird.



Deathbed





It's midnight,
And I await
The news.

It's midnight,
And I can't
Feel you,
Anymore.

Your breathing
Rasps against
Fate,
Torturing us
With each
Final gasp.

Have you
Left me
One last time?

Were your
Last moments
A dream of
Mummy's strudel?
My favourite,
Or Grannie's
Plum dumplings,
Your favourite?


Your life,
Your death,
Your new life
Without us.

Enjoy your new
Restaurant
In the sky,
Where you'll
Cook for the best,
Where you'll
Never burn the pots
Like your
Little sis.

You'll delight
The angels,
And feed the poor,
Dreaming up
Delicacies
For their
Delectation,
And His
Eternal
Satisfaction,
As he sips
Your exquisite,
French wine.

Beautiful poem. I can relate to my father's death, when I wrote beautifully to channelize my grief. You know, poems are immortal. And you made your brother immortal by sharing the wonderful things you both did together!
