#Poem – One Last Time

Look at me,

My life, my soul.
Talk to me,
Tell me things
I love to hear.
Pray, don’t be quiet.
Have no fear.

Hold my hands,

Whisper those words

I need to hear.

All I want is

To feel your touch,

To feel the warmth.

So, don’t look away,

I need you near.

If I had know,

The slightest inkling at all,

Would hold you close,

That one last night.

Would smile some more,

On that last joke.

Would kiss you sweet

That one last time.

Hug you tight,

And not let you leave.

Would never fight

On trifling needs.

Had I know

Of fragile lives,

Would live each day

With you,

Some more,

Some more.



This morning I came across a very sad news. One of my Engineering College batchmates lost her husband last week. We weren’t in touch and even if we were I wouldn’t know what to say to her. I cannot even begin to imagine her pain. I just hope she and her child get the strength to carry on. If you read this, please send out a silent prayer for her. Thank You.
