Passing Away

Image
Shimmering lights


Will fade up soon,




This brightness shall not

Be there, in the noon.



I won’t be there

To see the morn.



You enjoy the days

The stars, the moon and the sun.



I’ll come back sure, just

After a brief sojourn.



Parting is difficult

Don’t say goodbye…



Hold my hands

I’m not going that far away.



Don’t bade me farewell

With so tearful eyes.



Let it be a happy one

Smile! Stop those cries.







I’ll be leaving behind

All bonds, relations, all ties.



Thousands of emotions shall be left unexpressed

Thousands of words, unspoken…..



Works undone, moments inexperienced

As life fades and hopes shrunken.



As life’s cradle heads to the grave

And the beating heart retards..



Senses get numb, vision starts blurring out,

I ponder over life and the unspoken words.



I can’t bear the poignancy of parting and separation

The tearing sorrow and unbearable pain.



I don’t want to grieve more,

Lie here and ask when….?



Memories crop up, as moments slip by

Into the lap of eternity.



I stand on the fringes now

THE LAST RIDE TOGETHER




by: Robert Browning (1812-1889)



SAID--Then, dearest, since 'tis so,

Since now at length my fate I know,

Since nothing all my love avails,

Since all, my life seem'd meant for, fails,

Since this was written and needs must be--

My whole heart rises up to bless

Your name in pride and thankfulness!

Take back the hope you gave,--I claim

Only a memory of the same,

--And this beside, if you will not blame;

Your leave for one more last ride with me.



My mistress bent that brow of hers,

Those deep dark eyes where pride demurs

When pity would be softening through,

Fix'd me a breathing-while or two

With life or death in the balance: right!

The blood replenish'd me again;

My last thought was at least not vain:

I and my mistress, side by side

Shall be together, breathe and ride,

So, one day more am I deified.

Who knows but the world may end to-night?



Hush! if you saw some western cloud

All billowy-bosom'd, over-bow'd

By many bene…
