And so it ends...


And so it ends 
In a moment 
In an instant 
In a breath 
Or its absence.


At some stage 
the mourners leave
Replaced by silence
that fills the emptiness 
Like your voice once did


Except for the echoes 
Of laughter 
Of smiles 
Of the look in your eyes 
And the touch of your hand 
As it held mine 
Of the feeling of warmth 
Radiating from the love I felt


Echoes 
That slowly fade 
Into lonely shadows 


All that is left in the end 
Is the echoes 
And dust 
And the memory 
Of the warmth I once felt 


And so it ends
In a moment 
In an instant 
In a breath 
Or its absence.


(Reflections on the passing away of Bapi and Arvind)
