Coz you live on brother


you live on

in my heart

when searching for courage

and looking for succour

I have always found you near

sometimes a rare blinkless star

sometimes a rare fragrance

sometimes a rare piece of goodwill

knowing you

receiving your love

has been the greatest achievement so far

how I wish the tide was different

how I wish the current could change

how I wish I could hear your

‘how are you?’

‘are you preparing for NET’?

funny how the most mundane

hurts more

you are a kind soul

loving and giving

those who knew you well

knew your worth

how you fought with a smile

cheered others even through your tears

you taught me much

you gave me more than I could ever return


forgive me for what I could not do

love I did and still do

proud I felt and still do

know that you are missed

everyday every minute

know that much has changed

for the better or worse

since you left

yet the love is the same

always the same

we talk of you a lot

could there be a simpler soul than you

could someone love as selflessly as you did

sending you hugs and kisses

across the universe

on the other side

when we meet

we shall sit down

and talk our heart’s fill

till then love for ever

now and evermore

Love Lekha Chechi

  1. Very moving. I could read this every day, thinking of my dear friend Charlie (as I do so often). He would have liked my reading your poems to him, if I had known about them earlier.
