Cycle of life

Written by: Pradipta Roy Choudhury

There is someone,
writhing in pain,
longing to speak to you,
for once, again,

Fifty one years 
lost sorrows to gain,
Life did start,
All over again,

He was your  inspiration,
You were his gem,
up until,
the day of reckoning came,

In you mantle, stood four men,
crafted with hands in a distant continent,
that your father had brought,
along with the pain

Dreadful thought
of parting again
Life took different paths,
different ways it went

Until the day it converged again
