Here is one last thing, one last day, one last hour
a passing of time like sands of my life too shall pass
with a final attempt holding on to my dreams
getting blown in the sky on the night of year’s eve.
Shall we raise one more glass to forget what it was?
Maybe once to remember what we are leaving behind
what we search in our lives but we never can find
so we drink once again when tonight be the last
and no tears to regret how the years fade so fast.
Cheers! to all and for all may you find love in time.

It is easy to let go and drift away
unnoticed, no marks left on the bark
of the old tree, like a life forming rings
through the seasons of time.
In the shadows dissolve, nothing mine
to hold on, nothing gets on the way
if I want to just fade,
to let go while alone drift away-
“We keep drifting till we see light. Seldom do we realize that the light was always there!”
― Avijeet Das
What is this world we created?
Born out of shadows and pain it grows
every word planted in a fruitless garden
where seeds wither and harden
and bear no witness to our design.
Fall turns to winter in emotions confined
to the coldness of a feeling that froze
in a couple of verses with no ending found
to a story abandoned as new seeds find
its way in a new spring full of dreams.
But to every winter we are bound
playing in summer with new schemes
not meant to last, for every verse dictated
comes to exist as a reminder of what seems
a life destined to the winter we created.
― “Nothing burns like the cold. But only for a while. Then it gets inside you and starts to fill you up, and after a while you don’t have the strength to fight it.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
If I was to die
fade from memories
quietly as well
tip toeing quietly through life
footprints quietly unknown,
was I ever there?
Would the place I fell
through the ages bear
any signs of me?
When my face with time
was I ever real?
If I was to die quietly alone
would my death reveal
once I was alive?
or like a tree that falls
with no one to hear
was I ever here?
