When The Sun Sets On Me - Poem by krishnakumar chandrasekar nair

When the sun sets on me
Do not cry or say good bye
As I disappear with the evening shades
To some promised land to bide
Having lived reasonably well
And someday under a different sun
And a different moon...........
We will meet again
To sing and laugh
Relive the past
Restart old coversations
Without having to ever die again
And till then... till then....take care
Live well, die well....adieu......


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Some day we will all have to leave all alone........

    To sing and laugh; and, to restart old conversations. Nice piece of work. (Report) Reply

    I'll send this to MyPoemList. but ….. oops! ..... Restart old coversations? someone stole an n. here, you can use this one: N. But, maybe PH was the culprit; sometimes I swear PH changes things.

    i had trouble reading it in one place due to a lack of punctuation, but i managed! I wanted to continue line 5 into line 6 as being all in one sentence.

    wouldn't it be NICE..........if the poem came true? yes, it would be nice.

    i especially like Having lived reasonably well............ though i'm not sure if you are talking about creature comforts enjoyed or an upright personality/morality lived.

    die well.... another uncertain phrase for me, but i like it also.

    bri :)

    p.s. i like your use of a series of periods (to ‘make’ the reader pause): of course i like it since i do the same thing sometimes in my poems.

    p.p.s. I can’t resist. I’ll have to look at the Humpty Dumpty poem. (Report) Reply

    I can just hear these words as a final farewell at a celebration of ones life. A beautiful ending to a Funeral service. Love the title too. Thank You and I have saved this (Report) Reply
