The Great King Passed Away… - Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

The great king passed away
Leaving the kingdom in grief
His mortal body laid to rest
Next day the king was hailed
His heir apparent being crowned…

The disciple then asked the sage:
What’s left behind?
Of one who leaves this stage?
His Name; mused the sage:
Will live long through an Age!

    That's the meaning of life, some are lucky, some aren't. When a door is closed, another one is opened, that's the mechanic of life. Very good lines, good theme and idea. (Report) Reply
