First rays of the sun touched her face,
She looked so beautiful even when asleep,
I moved the curls of hair off her eyes,
The moment almost seemed divine to me!
The nightmare woke me up with a start,
Drenched wet with perspiration,
The events unfolding that night,
Were as clear in my memory even today!
I remember the phone call that I got,
which brought the dreaded news,
I remember rushing to the hospital,
To find you amidst a cluster of tubes!
I remember the doctors telling me,
That; there were no hopes,
My dreams came crashing down to earth,
As if life had just come to an abrupt close!
I remember myself holding your hand tight,
In those final moments; pleading with god,
I sat there even when it was over,
Knowing that you couldn't just leave me and go!
I remember myself becoming hostile and disconcerted,
No amount of consolation making me normal and sane,
I still break down beside your grave,
Knowing that there would be no one ever again!
I still feel your warm touch sometimes,
When I am all alone,
I look back hoping against hope to find you,
Only to find walls as cold as stone!
This void created within me, when you left,
Is infinite and can't be filled,
This deep dark abyss drives me insane,
All my desires brutally killed!
I roam around these ruins,which once were my perfect life,
I wish so hard to end this trauma, this maddening strife,
I stand atop this precipice, hoping this will end the pain,
I hope to be with you once more, in death I see my gain!
