A Poem by Abhinav

It happens, that when you are close to someone, their loss changes your life forever

Its difficult to say, goodbye
after only one life together
But I promise dear friend
I will remember you for ever

It was so cruel
What life did to you
I had lost a friend
So genuine and true

Now all thats left
are the memories of you
Pictures and stories
of the things we'd gone through

Each day, every night
I think about you
Of the laughs, of the jokes
and the things you might do

No one can ever take your place
I can promise you this
Its hard to find someone like you
you'll always be missed

Its difficult to say, goodbye
after only one life together
But I promise dear friend
I'll forget you never

(Dedicated to my friend,who died 3 years ago)

That was very heart-wrenching and poignant. Loved the way you have structured it as well. Each and every sentence is speaking a story on its own. Very intriguing.

Very touching. I really like how you state how it's only one life together, because time can go by so quickly, and take things so violently. Then continue to speed on while one feels sort of frozen. There's a beautiful simplicity in this, in the way you weren't over zealous in your grief. You left everything heartfelt and raw, and it's lovely.

I hate goodbyes!
Said a bunch none the less, so I know how it feels!
I totally relate to this piece, I salute you!
Its a very heavy weight writing it if I am not mistaken,
If we only never had to say good bye!?!?

All the best,

One word: Heartfelt.

It always hurts when someone leaves you. Your don’t know what to do. When I lost someone I really cared about not too long ago, for a while I thought that person’s death was a lie. I couldn’t accept him being gone. Great write.

I feel the pain ooze through this piece. The impact this friend left on your life is evident. Your friend would be very proud of you.. I am sorry for your loss. Keeping writing & inspiring through your experiences though.

It seems to me this friend meant so much to you Abhinav....and you feel his loss..the cold cold express these emotions so well.... I can't imagine how painful this must have been for you ....your friend hears your cry from within and he is with you continue to live and continue to give to the world. Courage in your grief.....!!

This was good. For anyone that's lost somebody, it's extremely easy to relate to. You didn't over complicate it, you just simply put what you felt in simple words. That's one of the things I liked best about it, that's what I felt brought the true emotion out of this.

There are many people who touch our lives so deeply and effect us so intensely their loss is felt for many years after. Very touching.

It describes very well how one may feel when someone dear to them dies. Touching.
