.death like conception.

death like conception
arrives with the whims of fate
or the gentleness
of the moment.
now death stood in your soul,
the tenant body has surrendered
its blood and life-redness
to its owner,
but death should not come
to the pulsating cells,
not after convalescene,
the rest of renewal.
but it came
and it took you along.
home is where
you return at last,
at the end of the truncated
winding road..

to baby Umar Hamzah, may you rest in peace.
