When He Finally Set Sail - Poem by krishnakumar chandrasekar nair
From the shores of intense suffering
After being tossed about days and nights
Like a boat tethered to the shores of grief
As wave after wave of pain battered it
He must have had no regrets
Having invested his life well
In love and in compassion...
And too many of his loved ones cried
The night he left; a moon less one at that
And now he is all over the basic elements
In settled earth, flowing waters and raging winds
Dispersed, and yet I quite often find him
Many a time when silence and solitude calls
With deep remembrance of times gone by
And I see him sit on the sick bed of my mind
Grey eyes half open, slightly unshaven
Smiling faintly, one hand outstretched
Cold but throbbing with love, with so much love....
