Stop and Stare

I was eight, a man bereft of life
Cradled in his shroud, preparing for a flight;
Into the world where no one would cry,
From mortal to eternal, bidding a goodbye-
To the folks around.

They just look, peep into his shallow eyes,
Little did I realize;
I was among the folks who'd just sympathize,

[Hata Bildir]
