To Rest My Soul - Poem by Subbaraman N V

With the passing of every day
Sure I see the parting of lovely way
Lot of change in the official life
Not less change in the actual life
Memory leaves to be kept in file
And to keep the life in distinct style!
End of sixty approaching fast
Work to be done is surely vast!
No more talks, no more notes
No more calls, no more quotes
No more meets, no more pains
No more meets, no more strains!
'No more file' is not 'no more life'
Brighter days to see better life!
The life is long and the world is wide
Lot of things to perform side by side
Society and home, kith and kin
Long forgotten and sent to the bin
Thread to be picked and work to be planned
Spread of good and bad sure to be scanned!
Fast life to go yielding place to new
Full of thrills and frills enjoyed by a few
I have my way, I have my goal
Fast I go to peace where I'll rest my soul!

(Thoughts of a senior official in a Public Sector organization in his early sixtieth year of age-a few months before his retirement)

    enjoyable write... the word 'meet' appearing twice with different means... words 'flie' and 'life' juxtaposed complimenting each other... well, ten votes... (Report)Reply
