The Last Journey - Poem by Bireswar Halder

Tuck away vanity forever
Don't turn your face off
Come to me one last time
I shall be in the dark shadow
For a little while more
The coffin awaits its last nail
Memories wait
I long for your loving touch
Don't keep aloof anymore
Please come near the coffin by the fire
I will watch the flames
Curling over into the sky
Perhaps, you will see
And think of our playful memories
I will wait for your comeback
Nothing will change in the world
Except for the small pile of ashes
Spilling over the vase
Which lies in front of you

    Nothing will change in the world - this line makes the poem universal. Thanks for sharing.
