I sit at the banks of time,
Lamenting your departure,
As death sails, you away to,
Far reaches of the afterlife,
My side, a living distraught!
This mortal wave of fate,
Swept the castle we built,
Hard to find broken pieces,
If blinded by tears of guilt,
Left nothing behind to rebuild!
People say I did, all I could,
Fulfilled duties that I should,
Still, this agony speaks so loud,
Don’t know, if I made you proud?
In distress with many doubts!
Life has become standstill,
Not sure how to gather will,
You were the core of my strength,
How to live my life to its length,
Breathing without a purpose!
Last night I sensed your presence,
Felt alive in your warm essence,
Brushing my hair in a gentle streak,
Your touch, a peck on my cheek,
Putting my worn self to sleep!
Dead inside, even though alive,
To honor your name, I will strive,
I will achieve all you ever wished,
With one last hope, before I perish,
To be with you again when I leave!
Dedicated to my Mommy ( my everything)
