To live once again and to die once again
The place touched by that child’s foot is enough
To love once again and to hate once again
The futile moments spent with that woman are enough
To cross this comatose path with the quavering men
The giggles of children playing in summer sand are enough
To travel sharing the grief of saddened friends
The unending nights inebriated in wine are enough
To sing the songs of seasons in ocean’s gloom without diffidence,
The patience of my silently aging parents is enough
To move another day quietly ahead
To reach home another night with out any indictments
The silhouette of neem tree playing with kitten in the compound is enough
Finally to merge in this dust with gratitude to the earth
The feeling that I live here this moment is enough
To cleave once again another reincarnation less death,
This white paper I set aside to write these verses is enough
