Cloudy Dark rainy night
Lonely Star twinkled bright
Caressing zephyr unfurls my mind
In retrospect thoughts unwind
Moments spent together
Talking nonsense, even weather
Sipping tea having fun
Laughing over our lil puns
Rain drenched, jumping puddles
Thunder & lightening made us huddle
Movies, music, senseless jabber
These memories make it even harder
To accept brutal truth’s throes
Harsh reality that life bestows
My feelings I could never convey
One murky night you passed away
Tears always brim my eyes
I never got to say goodbye

*Note – This poem is dedicated to a dear friend and colleague who was my partner in crime all the time that I spent in Reliance -DAKC.. He suffered from throat cancer which he never realised and when they did diagnose it was too late to cure.. I never went to meet him at the hospital as I knew I couldnt stand him bedridden with all those tubes thru his body and I knew I would break down… Which he definitely wouldnt approve of… He was the closest buddy I have ever had.. I still feel guilty for not having met him.. and I hope he forgives me… where ever he is 😥
You will always be missed buddy 😥 and no one I believe can ever take your place pal.. I miss you 😦

Aah the end of the poem tugs at my heart. Why should Goodbyes be so sad always? But they are..most of the time! Saying it is as difficult as not getting to say it..:((
Lovely poem again Megz.
ATB for BAT13
this is actually dedicated to a dear friend whom i lost to throat cancer 😦
i never went to meet him in the hospital cos i knew i wud cry my heart out and he wudnt see me cry 😥

I could really feel the ripples in my heart… beautifully concluded.
And as always, Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought.

The poem was already too poignant and to know its frm ur real life experience, it makes it evn more touching.. May his soul rest in peace!
😦 This is a beautiful way to say goodbye to ur best buddy! I am sure he understands ur absence…but with this he would be convinced that u too were indeed best pals!
The poem had a nice flow ..and the words were well chosen…they conveyed ur thoughts so lucidly!
All the very best for BAT!!!
it wasnt a beautiful way to say goodbye.. it was a repentant ode to a dear friend who passed away 5yrs back and the guilt on my conscience still lives..
i can only hope he forgives me..
thanks for the wishes.. all the best to you too
Poignant! It touched me…and what pictures you paint. Your vivid visuals are a treat.
All the best!
thank you hiyaa 🙂
