Elegy on her Husband's Grave
by Ravinder Malhotra
Bookmark and Share
 
So many dreams now no more...
Life can never be like before
Moments shared now just memories
Yonder is life’s other shore
 
The river of time flows fast and swift
Rudderless in it is life adrift
No one to care no one to share
The remaining years no more a gift
 
Each day now a wearisome tread
Now not you someone instead
A faked smile a formal laugh
Your memories now a walking staff
 
With weary heart I'll bide my time
From a life now not sublime
When evening shadows lengthen on
I too shall die, but die forlorn

(The first line has been taken from one of the headstones in the Kohima War Cemetry. )
