When I’m Gone

by Gowri Bhargav


Will everything fade when my breaths cease?
Will my ashes scatter with the breeze?
Mirthful moments lived, memories madeโ€ฆ
When my breaths cease will everything fade?

Will my journey be forgotten once my words stop?
Like mist will I mingle with the clouds atop?
Will flowers bloom in the paths I’ve trodden,
Once my words stop will my journey be forgotten?

I hope my footprints linger alongside the verses I’ve penned,
And my stories are rejoiced after my end,
As I count my days in my lonely winter,
Alongside the verses I’ve penned, I hope my footprints linger.
