Dissipating Memories

Memories tend to get effaced

Despite being so intricately laced

A spatter of amnesia each passing day

Lashes the recall, to drift away


Time does cope with emotional healing

Life organically assuages hurt feelings

Never affording a moment static

Its essence remains truly enigmatic


Guilt then quibbles with the mind

Of shallow affection during lifetime remind

Let alone being beholden till eternity

A passing thought over time becomes a rarity


Buried in deeply dug narrow trenches

Where isolation from their kin wrenches

The departed hopes, someone from the clan drops by

To pay homage and their longing mollify


Lost in the worldly charm

Call of final journey rings no alarm

By acts of ingratitude, fate we all seal

Forgetting, every mortal shall pass through same ordeal


Time certainly is the biggest healer

To this chugging capsule, here’s my feeler

Let the pain of parting from our ancestors

Linger forever, so that reminiscences never fritter
