A Very Dark Day!

A Very Dark Day.

A sunny day it was, bright & beautiful

All seemed to be happy

It was a clear blue sky

The sun seemed to be smiling

It was a very infectious smile

All of us were soon in its clutches

No one could even dream of

A dark cloud that would darken our life forever with a thundering, paralytic effect!

Yes, your flight to the unseen world-

Has stricken us with absolute immobility-

We can neither think nor do anything-

To bring you back.

It’s so exasperating that-

You who saved & healed so many lives

Didn’t get a second chance.

You were undoubtedly saved from undue sufferings-

But we were not prepared for your departure so soon!

Though you aren’t amidst us-

You will always be with us-

We will love you forever

Death will never succeed in-

Snatching this precious feeling of ours for you!

May your soul rest in peace!
