Submerged in the sea of sadness
  eyes flood with 
    millions of droplets
      tale of grief resurface
         heart resonate memories
            transmitting lancinating pain....

  assimilating with the  ocean dark
    incessantly flows the stream unarmed
       waves  of yesteryear's thoughts
          reminds her of the son she lost....

A tribute to a distant relative .She had lost her teenage 
son many years back.
 A humble and cheerful woman ,her sadness always 
could be seen in her eyes.

    What a melancholy? May the bereaved family have the courage and patience to face the tragedy. Wish peace to the departed soul.

    I felt the pain in the words! More so, may be because I too have lost someone years back!

    • soumyav April 13, 2013 / 2:13 pm

    Soumya I can understand the pain of mother as i lost my beloved sister in 2002. Many years have passed but still i can sense the pain and sadness of my parents. This pain could never lessen…the more one reveals more will be the outburst of pain. one tries to suppress the sad feelings but deep inside this pain kills everyday.

    • soumyav April 13, 2013 / 2:16 pm

      Thts very very true Rachna. I have felt these that even after years this pain can never get erased ,it just gets subsided or sidelined..Iam really sorry to hear about your sister Rachna! And its really sad when another sibling also feels the pain of the loss and yet is not able to express it as the sadness of the parents is much more.

    Wow 😀
    You explained such painful feelings strongly
    And I know how it feels to lose someone whom you feel close to 😦

    • soumyav April 13, 2013 / 2:17 pm

      Thanks Yoshiko! Yes only when we lose somebody close or see the pain of someone closer ,we are able to actually feel it

    Oh this is sad. I feel for your relative and pray that she’ll be comforted. You’ve a good heart and I like that you’ve dedicated this post in memory of her late child.

    • soumyav April 13, 2013 / 2:19 pm

      Iam touched Uzo that you felt this. It was a sudden thought after I had a talk with ther…even though the incident took place years ago, I can still sense the void within.

    The pain is deep and the memories will never away seep.

    A gripping verse for someone dear and this is well done of you, my dear

    • soumyav April 13, 2013 / 2:22 pm

      Touched words Eric! I wrote my thoughts that I felt for her!

  10. ANKUR GOSWAMI April 13, 2013 / 9:06 pm

    The worst part being that nothing, simply nothing in this world can provide solace to a mother who has lost her child. She would have to live her whole life struggling each and every day with his absence; just his memories lying by her side, but only to exacerbate her pain.

    • soumyav April 13, 2013 / 9:38 pm

      you echoed the sadness very sincerely and humbly in your words Ankur!

    • soumyav April 13, 2013 / 9:43 pm

      Haven’t seen any of your posts lately?

    Very Touching. It is an irrecoverable loss.
    One can say after all ‘Life is like a Water Bubble.’
    Mother’s grief cannot be replaced.
