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….
