An evocative and heart-wrenching poem about defying death and manifesting oneself in various forms, by Neelam. A Different Truths exclusive.

They say that gone are you
Gone forever…
They say that your body has with sand mixed
All the traces of your existence taking away…

I try to grasp the facts
But my heart to disagree continues…

When your body burnt
Something called you on the ground below fell…
Grown there are small shoots of plants –
Didn’t they see?

When your ashes were in the water dispersed
A part of you touched the shores
Sprouted there is life in the form of small plants –
Can no one see?

When a part of you with the river water mingled,
A few fishes drank you bringing new zest in them –
Didn’t they see?

When the remaining of you
With the sea mixed
You brought hope in the whole world…

To a few of us solely you belonged
Till a little while ago
But now you are omnipotent
Giving your zest and enthusiasm to the whole milieu!

You are boundless
You are unlimited
You are infinite
And traces of you here and there and everywhere
Make me feel that you are still alive
In different forms!
