A Farewell Note To The Body By My Soul - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

When I entered in you, I know not?
When and how you accepted me, I know not?
But what I know for certain is we became one
Inseparable, indispensable and essential to live.

Now when you have grown old and weak
I am still young
With few bubbly thoughts, Unfulfilled
I may leave you anytime
Should you be prepared
To go back to dust
From where you emerged
I cannot accompany you
For your final journey
A journey which you have to take all alone
So be prepared,
People will come to see you off
But nobody will remain with you to talk
They will respect you, they will remember you
But they will never be your buddy

Together we lived but you will die alone
We shared good and bad days together
This togetherness will not last for long
I cannot live with you forever and ever
I will be commanded to enter a new body soon
I know not how that will be
All your accounts will be revealed
When time will come you will see
We will meet one last time when
I shall enter you on Almighty’s command
Till then take good rest
Inside your grave
And taste the good or bad
Everything will be paid

No reference will work, no preferences will be honored
I kept reminding you what is right and what is wrong
The result will be out as soon as you reach your grave
So taste the fruits of your own medicines.
I wish you happy journey all alone
from now onwards, till we meet again
just lay down quite
and see the scenes of your life…..Happy Journey.

    This is philosophical when soul enters to body. Souls take new birth with body and travels up to death. Wonderful farewell note drafted wisely.10 (Report) Reply
