And now that you’re gone ~ Dedicated to my late Grandfather

They sprinkle over me
water of roses; apparently thick and golden.
I am reduced to dust.
I am covered with dirt.
And they sprinkle over me
water of roses again.
I am not happy.
I am angry.
I am sad.
I’m just not the same, they used to know.
My happiness is lost somewhere,
why can’t I go back and pick those tears that I shed for you.!?
I cry over the smiles that rolled down your handsome face all the way up to kiss my forehead.
I sing with stars.
I sing to stars.
I sing to you a song of love.
I smell like oceans.
I smell like you.
I breathe like fish that is thrown out of water.
I wear black on yellow days and
white on black nights.
There is a corner in my room where I go, hide and cry and laugh.
I eat and drink the air you lost your breath to.
I miss you. They miss you.
I love you. They love you.
I miss the touch of your skin.
Would you not caress my head and bless me with all your love?
Can you come over and hold my hand, it’s dark here?
I needed you.
I need you.
I loved you.
I love you.
Where are you now??
I miss you.
Did you eat something, huh?
Do you not hear me calling you out over and over again and ultimately cry? And now that you’re gone, I eat and drink the air you lost your breath to.

The chapter has closed but the story has just begin. 
Dedicated to my late Grandfather S. Basant Singh.

  1. How beautifully you wrote pieces of your pain and agony into a such a beautiful writing. You’ll heal with all the love he gave to you…I know, coz I’ve been through the same. He descended to the much peaceful and quiet place…he’s still with u in your heart. He wants to see you happy and at peace. May god bless you. Again it hurts, but your heart deserves peace.
    I hope I didn’t over exaggerate.
