Waking up to news that shook us,

Sorrow for a life lost amongst us

Fear of more of it around the corner

Fears hounding us – this that and the other

All brought to the fore

As never ever before

The heartbreaking sorrow of loved ones

The solidarity n support of known ones

Death, the all-time equaliser, dealt a rock

For the rest of us, a time to take stock

A time to grieve,time to introspect

A time to forgive, a time to forget

Time to know that time waits for none

Today it was him, tomorrow, anyone..

Rest in peace, gentle soul, no more chronicles

No more pain n hurt but yes no more smiles….

May time heal the wounds you leave behind

May your memories warm the human mind….
