Mourning coffee ..


All the worlds sorrow

Today is kept

For one family

To bear…not to share


In the shaded bitterness

Of my suger-free

mourning Coffee

I numbly sip, sniff and stir


listening to the words

Of justification echoing

“From god we came

To god we shall return”


I walk hastily

to hide from

their sweeping pain…

into my silly tingly ache …



” I woke this morning on the devastating news of the tragic death of a young girl whom I knew as a smiling rose. God , bestow your mercy and comfort on her family ” ..

  1. I am so very very sorry to learn of this awful loss dear Tarek. There are never words to express emotions around such devastating loss as this. For her loved ones, I too will say a prayer today, and may her beautiful spirit ~ the ‘smiling rose’ energy that you knew and appreciated ~ continue to live on in the hearts of all those who were blessed to know her in this life. May God bless and protect her spirit now, and always. Your poem is quite sobering. Life is too mysterious and too short ~ R
