Life is so uncertain
Only death is certain We know yet we plan, We gain We strive for success Make excess If not, you feel useless Not knowing when On n on for years It only brings tears And more tears To see the loved ones Parting for their abode Now sets in fear Fear of your own end End of your loved ones How when where Suddenly u realize It's already there Heaven is beautiful They say To me life here is wonderful Heaven to me is unknown Till I drop my body own Dear. God Keep me in your fold Away from sickness n stress Together with mine In our nest
Life together for years 56
Mothered two by twenty-five We four n now no more Happily, on his BSA Whatever we may say Life was happy n gay. Weathering multiple ups n downs Highs n lows Went with the flow Seeing our girls grow Seeing them do well in school Made happy daddy cool With the snap of our fingers Realized they double graduated too Life went on In a blink Their path they took on. For greener pastures Seven seas beyond With their life partners Arun n Jey Ever so happy to mention Gifted us life’s extension Adwai Yashna. Nia n Meher. How time flew We never knew Our living license Needed to be renewed Years went by From twenty-five to seventy-five My love of my life At three plus eighty Left me in this world With tears in bed curled up With memories n more memories Of last fifty-six Once again Life to fix What where when how With without Know not what!!!
Yes, Poles Apart!
Yes, Poles apart From the start But in each other’s heart Each one played the part To mention a few Most of u knew Simple n quiet While I cud be a “riot” Far far from “quiet”. Very Contented For more Never attempted No qualms Always cool n calm Not believing In the lines Of his palm. On one on one Hearts he won Preferred not many Spending money? “No honey” In youth, good food Sure, had a sweet tooth To the core. humble His speech I would say He mumbled. Soft spoken Often caught napping Had to be woken Smile so captivating To see that once again Jangu Till we meet again
