The Bell

Standing in front of the wardrobe you made
You built flower branches just to decorate
Told me not to be afraid, ‘I am there for you
Just ring this bell I will make the space for two.

The night is silent, I can hear the stars speak
I walk towards the house painted Blue, Yellow, and Green
The house is decorated with the same flowers as you
I saw father and daughter chattering over hue
Spreading love and happiness as if that is all they knew.

I walked past them just to meet with goodbye
Stood near the ocean where you kissed and spoke your first hi
Now I am walking towards the grave where everyone stays

I keep ringing the bell, but no one answers
I embrace your head, for you to recognize this father
With no response, I touch the door
Reminding you, this is not adieu
