I Feel Your Presence

Reading Time: 1 minute

A verse in memory of a loved one, by Ritambhara, in Different Truths.

I feel your presence, no matter where I am

I feel your presence, no matter what I do

I can sense the touch when I first held your fingers and took my first step

I can sense you in every little moment I spent with you

Whether I am trying to cook

Whether I am sitting all alone

Whether I am in the company of others

There is always something in my actions or actions of others that reminds me of you

It is hard to live without you

It is hard to think you are not around us

It is hard to imagine I won’t be able to talk to you again ever

It is hard to believe I won’t be able to see you ever

You have lived your life o’ dearest Noble Soul

But this heart fails to understand why we are not immortal

Why this pain and agony of losing a loved one?

Why can’t the clock rewind?

I can feel you everywhere around me

Rest in peace O’ Noble soul

But you’ll be remembered till I breathe my last

The void you left can’t be filled

You’ll live in the heart of all those for whom you were always there.
