The Years Fly

a poem by Chitra Sridar

The years are flying by
Tears no longer flow
What that could imply
I truly dread
But I know deep in me
I couldn’t ever forget

I wish I could remember
Only with a smile
But the sadness creeps in
Every single time
Only because I realize
You left me behind

What you bequeathed
Will last me a lifetime
I am lucky to have known
Your love, your life and you
You inspire, guide from beyond
And I am less alone

My life will be complete
If I am half as giving
Part as forgiving
It gives me relief to know
That when its my time
I will find you again.
