Lonely We

We brought up walls
Of difference and distance
In thousands 
Every now and then.

Now is silence 
Another came up, and how....?
Little did we know!
But it wrests an embrace
With ice on our chest;
Oh! Where did the heartbeat go? 

Trees of love 
Standing in the garden
Are plenty. 
Beneath them children, 
Cheers for fruits they enjoy,
Remained though in their circles
Why they look so empty?

We needed, so we own
A separate piece of land.
Peace and happiness, we grow
From the saplings that we plant. 
So what caused us worries
When the corpses were burnt alone?
Why to beat our chest,
If now, the lonely have gone?
