For Those Who Lost Their Dear One's


whatever that exist must leave
like the leaves that slowly decay
or a gust of wind that plucks a flower young
like those flowers some people goes away

is it the blowing wind to blame
or a church where engraved is the cross
a question that leaves us wondering
how would they live with their loss

some look up at the night sky
they search for a star that’s bright
solitary companion to lead them
in a never-ending bitter night

if ever there was a cure
that knew how to ease off the pain
or to burn all those pleasant memories
that dwells in their laden brain

some things don’t have no reason
some things no one can explain
when our skin longs for the sunrays
sky greets us with endless rain

a rain that wets not our robes
but dampens us from the soul
what glory the heart would then seek for
a heart that’s now only a hole

they say time heals all the wounds
yet some scars forever they stay
someday might we meet all those faces
of our loved ones who live faraway

    I have read four of your poems and am very impressed by you skill in using rhyme. This one touched me most however, perhaps because I have lived through a number of bereavements over the last fifteen years. You might be interested in reading my poem Loss, which deals with the death of my brother and the way I often remember him when I see other people who remind me of him in some way. Loss 2 is about another aspect of this theme. I would be grateful to have your opinion. (Report) Reply

    Certain pains have no cure as long as our human concerns are not within a drafted structural orbit.
    Despite there being lot of images of pessimistic overtones, Kanav, you have ended the whole write with an optimistic note.. (Report) Reply

    Kanav this poem is a super six in cricketing terms. This poem has great poise and import. Unfortunately 10/10 is the ultimate score that I can give! (Report) Reply
