Good Bye! !


We tell good bye to our near and dear ones
Sure of meeting next time
But when life bid us good bye
Sure of not meeting anyone!

Don't know which bye is the final bye in ones life
Life put one in puzzle
It is very difficult to tell
Which bye would be final in ones life.
Today, neither I am sad nor any regrets to bid bye to life.

Live each day as if its the last day of the life
So that one never regret to bid bye to life.
Even if I bid bye to life,
With happiness I will embrace death.
Today, neither I am sad nor any regrets to bid bye to life.

We are like moths flying around the burning candle of life.
Today, nor do I fear of burnt to death, neither to sacrifice life
Even if the death calls me
I will come running towards you like a lover to kiss death.
Today, neither I am sad nor any regrets to bid bye to life.

Today, there is neither any dream in my heart that remained unfulfilled.
Neither any ambition calling me, which I have to fulfil.
I don't have any scare to die
But today I scare to live.
Today, neither I am sad nor any regrets to bid bye to life.

Some times bidding bye lasts forever
Sometimes one doesn't get time to turn back
That's what I want to say this life is about!
Its a puzzle where one get struck between life and death!

Hindi Version....ALVIDA!

    Death is a reality lurking in some unanticipated bent or corner. However, as you rightly say, we should be ready to meet it with a kiss and in order to do so we have to live each day as if it is the last day of our life. An excellent and soul searching poem. (Report) Reply

    I am not sad to bid bye to life but to see that emptiness left behind would be unbearable. But time does heal. Amazing last four lines.
    Thank you for you words Geetha (Report) Reply

I want you to know

of the slow autumn at my window,
