Do You Remember?

Do you remember?

It seems a lifetime but

It was only weeks ago

When we used to talk about anything

under the sun

Buried in

Review papers

Local and International conferences

Paper citations and publications

Messaging each other in the social media

Spewing ideas from podcasts and blinklist

Moments of meditation

How supportive you were in rekindling

my talent in poetry and pushing a book for it

Do you remember?

How we’ve been a part of each others’ journey

Soaring to greater heights

Far from dreams and imaginations could reach

Do you remember?

How important our friendship is?

The sweetest gift life ever brought to me

Is now slowly fading into view

Alas, it breaks my heart every minute

Do you remember?

I promise to cling to this friendship

No matter how hard it is

No matter what it takes

Till forever is through and

I release the last breath of my soul.
