When I Won'T Be Here - Poem by Neela Nath Das

When night embraces
all sleepy eyes and
you death hug me
with your gradual steps,
the pain stirs my awareness
of my presence in this
beautiful world!
What will be the scenario
when there will be no
morning for me..
My favorite attires, books
my guitar and my songs
and poems will they bear
any significance to others?
When I won't be here,
no change will be here
in the day's cycle,
everyday will go on
as the old days were,
but a person will be
forgotten, his name
will be wiped out
from every page of life...
No enemy, no friend
but a name once been
and never will be!

    Yes, this is what happens to each one of us once we are gone. After all we are mere specks in this vast universe and this poem reminds how puny we are in the teeming multitude! A well constructed poem! (Report) Reply

    yes our lives are single grains of wheat under the grist mill of life. But all these grains taken together
    make flour into bread that continues to sustains life. Be calm be aware all is as it should be. (Report) Reply
