Remembering!

The letter written below is for my mama (maternal uncle, the youngest brother of my mom) whom we lost recently due to alcoholic cirrhosis.

A Lot More – A Poem

you asked me
if I was fine

but what would you’ve done
if I was not?

things going on inside my head
like a bat out of hell

which makes me sometimes
an unfeeling swine

but I chose to keep
my mouth shut

even though I had
a lot to tell

you think
you know me well

but there is so much
inside of me

a lot more I could never tell!

a lot more you could never see!

Witnessing the Beauty – A Poem

this road-
detour and tough!
tough row to hoe!
sun about to set
at the end of the day
a faint glimmer!
twilight! as they say!
wind blowing fiercely
agitating the leaves of a tree
a tree-
standing there,
tall and strong!
unflinching!
my fortitude! surely a tree!
and there it is-
sunset! the sky!
so dim! my life!
but surely for a fleeting time
dim, yet so beautiful!
like the sunset,
as they say!
end, yet a beginning!
like the years-
the same years
that we leave behind us,
and celebrate the new ones!
end!
end of some dreams,
but a beginning of new hopes!
I am waiting-
waiting, for the sun to rise!
like those hills!
for after every sunset,
there comes a new sunrise!
I am waiting-
all alone!
astonished!
by the beauty of nature!
the beauty of life!
but for now,
let me not waste-
waste my time!
to tell you
how beautiful you are!
for dear sunset,
you are as beautiful
as the sunrise!
and I will be waiting-
waiting, for the gloomy days!
as desperately as
I wait for you!
to witness the beauty-
the beauty of nature!
the beauty of life!
