After Death

after death comes silence
you unlearn to speak
how to describe a feeling  
that hurts so strong, runs so deep 
a feeling like a tyranny 
and your soul's a battlefield 
after death comes darkness
no spark was left to keep
fate ravished things from you
you did not want to give
it does not ask for permission
fate gives you permission to live 
after death comes silence 
the meaning of speech is obsolete 
it leaves you all deserted
no word no sign no dream

after death comes darkness
it's cold and strange and mean 
you're numb, straying thru the night
no angel, no hope, no exit in sight. 

This is a song I wrote after a good old friend passed away. He was only 38 years old. His death was so senseless and unfair. I hadn't seen him for a long time, he was travelling through the world. But after his death I was really out of track. Also this song is dedicated to another friend of mine who died much too early.
They say time heals all wounds but I think hey do I want this ? I want to be sad, I want to mourn, because my longing and missing is not getting weaker but stronger. Today is Boris Birthday.
