Forever We'll Love - Poem by Asavri Dhillon

All the roses have bloomed
by the muddy road
The sun hid his face
And kept crying in sorrow
Clouds became cushions
For the bleeding hearts
Earth-beds became warm
As soon as they held your soul
Skies became rich
To touch the great heart of yours
Our tears bore fruits
Because our eyes craved to see you alive

You left us behind
Peacefully you went
Your soul attained freedom
You now live in heaven's corridors
Your room in our hearts will remain in there forever
The memories of you in our minds
Will nourish our hearts forever long

Hard it is, real hard,
When someone close to our hearts
Leaves one day everything behind
The walls of the house lose their member
All they are left with is the scent of their souls

Where can we now find a place to weep
As in our tradition we don't bury
Yes, we can cry when we are alone
Yes, we always remember you no matter what
But sometimes in our life
Our hearts ask for a place
Where your name is etched in the stones
Where we can go and sit with you for hours

How can I control my tears oh grandfather
Teach me how
My heart is aching I buried all my sorrow
If I cry I'll remind mum of you
If I'm sad she'll cry too
She craves for her father
she is hiding it behind her eyes
I am her daughter I can read her eyes

How weird it is?
How painful it is!
The person you breathe along with
Suddenly disappears...
Goes away from our souls to the Heaven's Halls
All which we are left with is
The memories which hurt us so bad

How hard it is to see our beloved being cremated
How hard it is to see their lifeless bones
What pain we store in our hearts
Will never make anyone know
The pain is deep that we bury it
The pain is real that we hide tears
The pain is true that we can't speak
The pain is Ours only we can feel

Its good God took you
To His beautiful gardens
The peace on your face makes us say so
You'll no more have to bear the pain Father
You'll no more have to cry inside your heart's rooms
You were, are and always will
Stay in our heart's special room
Forever we will remember you
Forever we'll love...

These words I speak from the bottom of my heart
Your granddaughter misses you
Hope you know..

Forever we will remember you
Forever we'll love...

    Lovely dedication and eloquent memorial to a granddad, whose glorious exit from earth into eternity has left an irreplaceable void in the hearts of loved ones. Beautiful rendition of words from inner recesses of the heart with conviction. An insightful piece of poetry elegantly brought forth. Thanks for sharing my friend. (Report) Reply
