When My Voice Stops! - Poem by M.D Dinesh Nair

When my voice stops for ever
There will be no tumults of words ever.
The stars will still twinkle and rivers will still die.

When my voice stops I shall dive into your oblivion
And in another costume someone will impersonate me.
The hymns will still be heard and the fresh idols will surface.

When my voice stops a lone sheep may bleat
As it stands near the tender leaves aplenty.
I think it may bleat for a while and cease to do so thenceforth.

When my voice stops those who loved me once for a while
May shed a few drops of tears innocent
And I may turn on my tomb for a sigh!
