When you died…

You might not have thought
That countless will mourn you ,
And will shed copious tears and cry.
Why you didn’t think of us ,
When you decided to quit and die?
If only people who feel deserted
Look around for people who love.
They might not feel so left alone.
If only they raise a cry
For sure someone who cares will turn up there soon.
If only the ones in pain
Decide to share the pain and cry,
I am sure they will feel the release
Which is better than to quit and prefer to die.
You left the world in pain to get rid of your pain,
If only you would have reached across,
It would have been everyone’s true gain.
The ones who feel that death is the only solution
Just think of your loved ones who might not always express the support or say.
But every life is precious for some one close
Just look around,It will make your day.

*P.S In memory of someone very precious but who left too soon.

    The poem gives a subtle expression to the value we give to the people who depart all of a sudden leaving an unpredicted void. Delicate yet realistic.
