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
