Farewell My Friends – Gitanjali Ghei
It was beautiful, as long as it lasted, the journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever, save the pain I’ll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care, the heavy with sleep ever moist eyes.
That smile, in spite of a lump in the throat and the strings pulling at the heart and soul.
The strong arms that held me up when my own strength let me down,
each morsel that I was fed with was full of love.
At every turning of my life I came across good friends,
friends who stood by me, even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends, I smile and bid you goodbye.
No shed no tears, for I need them not, all I need is your smile.
If you feel sad, do think of me, for that’s what I’d like,
when you live in the hearts of those you love, remember then…… you never die.
