The Last Goodnight

The Last Goodnight

A Poem by Bhavya Kaushik

Shut down every window and close every door,

Don’t allow anyone to pass across this Boulevard.

Close your eyes now and hear their silent screams,

Coming from the main street, from the graveyard.

Shed every other color now and wear only black,

Let just mourn for the loss, and grieve for his death.

Let me remember his last memory, his last smile,

The things he said to me before his last breath.

In just a moment, he has gone to an unknown space,

There it goes- his frozen coffin out of the sight.

Let me say something to him, may be even a goodbye,

Let me wish to him with my cold words the last goodnight.

No matter where I'll go and what I'll do in my life, but I will always remember you. You will always be more than a memory for me.

This was so sad and so very beautiful. That line "shed very color now and wear only black" was just perfect. This was just Shakeepearean in its simplicity and wonderfully written.

good one bhavya it was full of deep thoughts to take any emotion with these words. appriciation for a small wish in words but the biggest in emotions..and we always miss the last glance of that face we alwayz spent our days with. tuffest thing to do is watch the grave shifting down in the silence..good writting
