You'Ll Have To Stay Alive - Poem by Nikhil Parekh

YOU'LL HAVE TO stay alive for the sake of all those leaves; which
brushed past
your dainty skin while you walked in wilderness,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those dreams; you saw
every
night when in deep sleep,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those droplets of rain;
that
passionately cascaded down your body; when you stood beneath the
clouds,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those nostalgic memories;
that
reminded you about your past every unleashing minute,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those jokes; that
engendered you
to thunderously laugh; every time you heard them circulating in
proximity,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those clothes; that you
vibrantly adorned while dancing unrelentingly; till wee hours of dawn,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those patches of earth;
that you
inadvertently tread on while achieving your mission,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those things which you
felt;
transmitting you into waves of unparalleled ecstasy, when you were
deserted
alone,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those birds which loved
your
presence in the morning; singing to you their absolutely favorite
rhyme,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those dolphins; which
leaped in
exultation; the moment they witnessed you standing near the shores,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those roses which yielded
you
their pristine scent; fervently awaited you to water them at dusk,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those butterflies that
kissed
you nimbly on your cheeks; while making their expeditions towards the
open
sky,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those eyes that admired
every
task you accomplished; bolstered your confidence every unfurling hour;
in your
quest to achieve supremacy,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those idols you
vehemently
prayed to; which made your life a blissful experience to exist on
planet
earth,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those people who held
your
hands; assisted you to cross the streets bustling with obstreperous
traffic,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those cow's which fed you
with
milk every day; grinned at you subtly as you fed them with delectable
clusters
of green grass,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those draughts of wind;
that
incessantly imparted tenacity to your lungs to contentedly breathe and
stay
rejuvenated,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of the parents who evolved you;
raised
you this big from the stage of being an inconspicuous little child,
And more importantly than anything; you'll have to stay alive; for me,
as the
my heart would relinquish to palpitate; dying a ghastly death the very
instant
your beats separated from mine.
