No more

It still lingers
Ears  still ring
with fateful  news
Eyes can’t believe
the wetness within
The pyre resounds
only silence
light slighters
in blackness
what matters now
the flame at the wick
has been untimely snubbed
Life is over
You are no more

Its sickle swung
Death called
All so soon
All so abrupt
and all so sudden
no time for prayers
no last words uttered
no time for a single thought
Lives simply  ebbed
into nothingness
Ere the nick of time

And as wet winds blew
kiths and kins
family and friends
near and dear
numbed and stunned
froze in grief
aghast in despair
to accept the truth
that death calls
sans any warning

May the souls RIP
