She knew she had finally arrived
To the place where no one cried
For this world appeared so blurred
She spoke nothing but a word.
"At last" said she
with a glimpse of her family.
She knew she had suffered a lot
But with all her spirits had she fought.
One card fell alone
The ‘castle of her life’ broke,
But still she turned
With a hope of despair that now began to burn
It was as if time was not by her side
Nothing was in her stride
She loved the flowers of recovery kept beside
The vibrant colors & liveliness was not to hide
Her dreams were now to the world
And her desires remained untold
But now everyone saw her riding
Towards the angel that she was sighting
The church bell rang for the last time
Everywhere, there was no rhythm, no rhyme.
As everyone waited for the ‘dusk of tomorrow’,
She edged down the line of silence that was so narrow.
And now, there was nothing to say
She had gone & no one could stop that in any way.
Her bed was cleared and the room was cleaned,
All wept as one pearl had just left from the ‘family bead’.
But everyone believed she was nearby,
Somewhere, some place her soul wandered that never wanted to die.
We witnessed her boldness
Even in the eleventh hour ,we saw her calmness.
Had now we realized,
She understood ‘life’ & she was wise.
As once the candle is lit
It has to melt & turn to just a ‘bit’.
And her example taught all,
To be brave & daring even in the final fall.
A final stop
Looking back in time
I think about my adulthood and prime,
In me has faded away
Infancy, youth, adulthood that now I keep at bay.
I’ve faced each day as a challenge,
With all my efforts, smartness & talent.
There was the dawn of desires, duties & relations,
And the dusk of contentment and satisfaction.
I see my children in the lap of progress
But see in them the worries and tensions that I must suppress.
I live each day in hope of living for tomorrow,
Away from the world of fights, humiliation and sorrow.
In my final journey to the horizons of happiness
I pray each day for a better & healthy world of progress
I am proud to see the dynamism & enthusiasm in the youth
But regret to see their aggressive fights, though they’ve the same root.
I express my gratitude to all of you,
To those who helped me accomplish my dreams and goals too
To those who gave me the power of ownership
And the love of friendship.
To my family who respects me
And to the almighty who blesses me.
The era I lived in is now in history
And for the people yet to come, my life would just be a story
As there’s nothing but one thing for a while that’s static
& that’s happiness that always makes you ecstatic!
I am through the final pages of my destiny_.
But always with the fragrance of each phase of life that dwells in me.
