A tribute!

Updated on September 25, 2014

floral tears...

heart-rending...

Oh sir!

Wish I had spent

moments of chat

to enlighten my mind,

a dark one

filled with ignorance;

your position,

and mine too low

maintained the distance;

been inspired by

your soft and strong speeches

impregnated with wisdom,

rare to find these days;

A daily

carried your coffin

that my eyes

instantly

longed to see;

set I out

to bid you

my first and last adieu;

How strange!

after an hour's hunt

for your residence -

landed I

in the same street junction

only

to get a glimpse

of your immobile body

wheeling in a grim van;

Sir,

was it all in the air,

my respect for you,

piled up for years!

My tearful good-bye, sir!

      Lovely poem. We often want to say so much to someone when it is too late.
