Life is beautiful....yet unpredictable

You looked like a princess sleeping peacefully,
but this is no sleep or dream,
you're actually gone and I'm yet to come to terms with it.

I will no longer be able to hear your voice,
let alone that infectious laughter;
life is such a beautiful process,
yet unpredictable at the same time.
I cannot believe you're gone,
but you're actually gone;
I wish this can be just a bad dream which will soon be over,

but your pain is now over,
and though the lives you left behind misses and loves you dearly;
you are now entering into that beautiful garden which is being prepared for you,
no more pain, you are now free.
Until we meet again,
continue to sleep in paradise.

About this poem

A colleague of mine died last year in a car accident, it was so sudden, it left everyone in shock, and the most painful part is the fact that she left a son behind. I thought about her for months after her death. May her beautiful continue to rest in peace.
