Death


Tender touch of love drops we love so much
Knots of grief and joy in our conjoined bliss
A dreadful blow in our loss of life crutch
Ruthlessly snatched away by a death’s kiss

Our time bleeds in gray and black restlessness
No words of comfort, no dewdrop can cure
The long gloom of our hollow soul on face
The child in the man feels so insecure

The hand I held till yesterday with joy
Now holds the sun moon fountain and our sky
With amber power that none can destroy
In wings of blue birds fond memories fly

Miles after miles we have walked hand in hand
Now in my lonely time the grains of sand

A glorious poem my friend, Probir! You have captured all parameters of death! I have written on the same subject a trilogy! A seven!
