Elegy to you, Peace

I remember your smiles dear sister,
Your struggle to live in this pathetic world,
Your last smile and when you slept in peace
I glad that your pains are no more
Though I miss you and we may live alone
I still see tree leaves fall from the window side,
Sitted on the lawns that you fell upon
I see regrets pick through the grass
While soft winds play rush in the hospital
But you, you are no more to smile for me
And watch nature play before our eyes

I shall fear no more for your pain, adieu

Hello everyone. I lost my sister, Peace Iroegbu, yesterday night to an accident. I haven’t been myself lately and can’t concentrate on my work. Please include me in your prayers.
