Realisation of Death

Time is approaching fast

for me to say Goodbye.

I need to see you all here

around me.

Where are all my children,

my dear ones and my friends ?

Please call them in.

Do I hear they are all here ?

Oh it’s so nice,

I thank you all for being here

bearing the terrible cold outside.

Don’t leave me alone ,

even for a moment,

my Sweet heart.

Please stop crying - I feel pain,

Hold my hand tight and not let go.

Give me a kiss on my forehead,

keep talking to me

even if I fail to answer back.

I am losing all my strength,

Unable to speak to you all


My children, be happy,

look after yourselves

and do take good care

of your mum,

Won’t you?

She is so precious and sweet

as you know,

Don’t let her feel my absence,

- Ever.

Promise you will listen to me.

My friends, you have been so kind

all way through,

Please stand by my family

if and when there is a need,

None of you must cry

as my breathing stops for good.

This is life, we all will have to go Oneday.

There is no escape from it.

My eyelids are becoming heavy,

My vision is now very hazy,

I won’t be able

to keep my eyes open for long.

I can hear a whispering call

asking me to get ready for

the Final Journey.

Before I go, I thank you all

For loving me and taking care

of me all the time.

Please forgive me if I have ever

hurt you.

I do love you all and always will,

I am leaving with a wonderful memory

of you everyone.

Got to go now, I have no choice.

May God Bless you all.

It’s Good Bye.

  • I watch you and wonder where you go!

    I watch a pretty lady every morning, wonder where she goes and stays. Would like her to fall in love with me but cannot ask her as I fear she may not let me watch her again and make my sundays empty !

  • Sing, Dance and Laugh!

    I have intended to bring some fun in this poem. What I am basicvally trying to convey is that we should sing, laugh and dance to keep ourselves fit and well and enjoy our life to the best we can.

  • Last Night's Blunder!

    It was night, I thought of writing a poem, comfortably sat on a chair, Be it a love poem, a poem of fun or sorrow - I didn't really care. Many themes had entered my head, It would be so easy to write! ...

Oh Kamalesh my friend, this is so very sad, but at the same time I am thinking when the time comes, wouldn't it be sadder not to have the chance to say these words...

Beautiful and voting up.

My best wishes to you MM

Dear MM, yes you have raised an intelligent point point there. Didn't cross my mind whilst writing !! It will indeed be a sadder experience for the dying person not to have chance to say these words to his/her dear and near ones. And in such a situation those who could not be around would also feel equally sad. Anyway hope and pray we can have everyone around us when that day comes.

Thank you my dear Friend for reading and commenting. You have always been so kind and supportive and I appreciate that very much.

Take care. May God be with you all Always.
