Poet: Adan Mahajne- Loss (Elegy)

If you haven't yet experienced some type of loss
in some shape or form,
eventually, you will sink into the storm.
Time is passing,
the clocks eat themselves
and soon afterward, death will reach out to you
rob you, divorce you, separate you,
from every soul that wanders over your way.
You won't have the opportunity to say good-bye
and the vacancy in your heart
will be filled with seeking the answer to "what if?"
They will cry over you,
And this will replenish their souls.
Their pain will fade away,
but the love in their hearts will remain, anyway.
It's only time that heals, nothing else.
