Rest In Peace... - Poem by Sahil Mamtani

It takes a moment to kill,
feeling for nothing,
feeling for none,
life does give no more a second,
than it gives months for a soul to be bathed,
a virtue so great,
for a fortune so less,
as it ticks with a timer,
with what punishment has life to face,
needlessly to say,
that so sorry i'd be,
and a billion sorry souls would carry unto dust,
yet new ones be again born from lust,
my money has gone,
your fortunes are lost,
the many places they remembered,
the thousand thank you's that were so heard,
thousand hugs you must have felt,
the million blinks of an eye,
how so lively it all was,
and then only whispered about,
with a tingling crisp of breath gulping through the throat,
a shallow but deep voice comes out to say but only 5 words,
may they rest in peace...

    I've just added a poem for a friend who died few days ago and your title of this song was so tempting.. Perfectly written, emotional and sad, just as such things in our lives are; love it. (Report)Reply
