a poem by Karthik Sridhar

The tides ebb and flow again, the birds fly
To me, the world seems to have awakened
The numbness caused by your departure
Lessened, time is free once more

Love becomes more precious when lost
Spoken words to be held on to for eternity
Never realizing what we have in our hands
Until snatched away by cruel fate

The times we shared are a treasure chest
This heart wishes for more
A longing that can never bear fruit
To regain lost opportunities

There’s one thing I hold on to
You who have seen the Face of God
One day we shall be together again
I love you always… my father
