Nothing lasts forever Forever I will remember this As they are the words you said to me Me and and I Whatever... Had an unbreakable bond So they were right; 'till death do as part I was the castle and you my pillar Held me firm on the ground No storm managed to degrade your work You handled responsibilities tirelessly Best stories are in writings But your oral skill was an exception Exceptionally the best stories I have ever heard came from your mouth So alluring was your voice that it denied me sleep Very captivating a voice you had But now you are gone I am only left with those memories There is no reality in them Just illusions and hallucinations As I remember taking a glimpse at your lifeless body inside that cocoon Gone to soon I used to sing songs of adoration Not anymore as dirges have dominated my mouth The poems of praise that I used to write make no sense now I have ended up composing elegies I used to celebrate parents day but nowadays I am left celebrating mothers day You taught me how to be happy and I had not mastered it well That's why I ended up sad with tears rolling down my cheeks...
