a poem by Sudarshan Madhav Karhale

You won’t miss me;
you will need me.
You won’t hear me;
you will heed me.
There is love and hatred too;
Gratefulness for others and jealousy too.

Tears drop seldom;
smiles are welcome.
Care for one;
ignorance to the other.
Left only with my mother;
lost long ago my father.

Your presence is vital;
your absence is trivial.
Friendship exists;
envy is mythical.
Appearance make no sense;
words are logical.

Silence is my shield;
speech is my sword.
I will serve you;
no one is my lord.
Bound with hearts;
free of minds.
I am also a human–
one of a kind.
