Now I am a lone tree with no one to care,
With the leaves of happiness withered I look completely bare,
You were shockingly snatched by the hands of death,
I dwell in the memories of days filled with mirth.
Hadn’t you promised to stay with me forever?
Then why did you abandon me midway, my dear ?
My broken heart is struggling to beat,
Without you my life can never be complete.
My entire life has gone for a toss,
Alas! There is no way to replace the loss.
Time is a healer, people said,
Though alive, my soul is already dead.
Like the hands of the clock that just ticks by,
I shall count my lifeless breaths until I die.
