A Friend's Death. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

An untimely death of a dear friend
Never it is possible to forget
A life long friendship that expected
But death took away the life.

Still memories of the best moments
Parted with the departed friend
Ever it is an asset for a future life
Which the death couldn't take away.

Death, always a winner in the play
Death, always finding its way
Nature entrusted the duty to it
We have to accept the reality in principle.

    A reflective piece that portrays the helpless nature of man and the inevitable intrusion of the quietening force: death.
    This is sorrow in a grand style. Your words permit us to share in the pain.
    A well written one!

    All the sweet memories of a life long friendship makes us suffer when a friend dies and goes away. As you write it is the nature's way. But going beyond that, there is a God who accepts him after his death. So be consoled my dear friend. God bless you. thank you for this poem. (Report)Reply

    A good heartfelt poem on a subject that is rarely spoken about.
    Yet you so lovingly spoke about a dear friend that you lost.
    Appreciate your kind thoughts.

    True friends are hard to come by these days, to find one is very rare. It is really difficult to lose someone so close to you, the memories will stay in your heart forever. Yet, the tears will still flow for them. My heart goes out to you, this poem is a nice tribute to your friend. Thank you for sharing your heart with us. Take care. RoseAnn (Report)Reply
