A Song For Mortals - Poem by Varghese J Kuttikat

No immortal is capable of the supreme sacrifice:
Laying down one's dearest for the dearest
The dearest for a human is his life in the profoundest sense
A human celebrated as the sublimest in the kingdom of the living
Alone can claim the crown for this uniquest feat
Sudden vanishings or the last adieus natural inflict
Grievous wounds incurable on the kindred left behind
The departing humans feel the pain at the core too
And the mutually shared pain inevitable redeems mankind
Maybe, for a brief moment, he might wish to linger behind,
Which last mighty temptation should be pardoned
