A Loved One

I was devastated, when my

sweetheart died of cancer.

The death of a loved one can

throw anyone into deep depression.

I believe in the doctrine of rebirth,

and future life.

Every birth and rebirth, he would

come into existence in my life.

I kept silent, humming

songs in honour of his memory

to enrich my life.

Dealing with loss of a loved one

isn’t easy and takes time.

I was swimming upstream in

the river struggling against flow

and was shattering after his death.

I feel that true happiness is nothing,

if affection towards one’s relatives

is not established.
