Departed Soulmate

Learn to hold
the hand of the man
who takes his child to the grave.

Bless the fawn
that remembers
her mothers’ milk.

Pray for cure
or at least mercy
for the one
who is on the edge of disease.

Begin your day
with a million names
one for every soul
who has lived and died

You will never die
and
I will never die.

Life
and its gifts
will continue
for you and me.

Our shapes
and our colors
will change.

Near
and dear ones
will become
more colorful
and less visible.

When you smile and cry
for the dear departed
remember
I smile and cry with you.

and

When they all
will smile and cry
for you and me,
remember
we will be
playing sweet games

with our dear departed.
(For the sweet memory of my several departed soulmates…┬áKavita Baloo, Christa “Rose” Sommer, Nooruddin, Rahima Bi, Sakina, Mala, Fenn Sam David, Sandeep …)
