Absolute White. Quiet stillness.
You lay there without a care or worry,
While your father stood with the weight of the world on his shoulders.
You lay there with just a rose tint,
While your mother matched the colour of the sheet they covered you with.
You lay there with your eyes shut,
While sleep seemed to have deprived your sister’s swollen eyes.
You lay there with a serene calm,
While your loved ones were lost in tumultuous thoughts.
You lay there seeing future transitions,
While we held on to past memories.
Moments. Conflicting moments.
