Bereaved

The pain of losing a loved one...“In the name of the Father…” came the last lines of his prayers as he concluded the twentieth decade of the rosary.

Tears started to trickle from his eyes as he picked up a picture frame lying on his bed. It was the picture of a man who represents value to him-his father but has become a fractured fairy tale, a tragedy waiting to happen - in coma. The family doctor, Chuks, had told him to resort to prayers. Since his situation had defiled medical intelligence.

He walked into the ever-busy reception room of the hospice and stole glances at persons whose wards needed urgent attention, as they made haste. He had come to see the doctor but was shocked at the response he was given. The gloom written on the receptionist's face told a tale weighty for the lips.

He stood amid people who had become weary from weeping, their eyes red and sore. Death chose to be unfair as always. Its cold hands have gripped a soul. Chuks was also around for the funeral, but lying in state. He was shot by a careless bullet on his way to work.
