Stark white hair adorned his wrinkled face
No words he spoke nor heard the cacophony around
Alas! He was blind and deaf and bereft of spoken words.!
Spirited and effervescent, a lassie all of nine I was
Of an age that did not echo with deep sentiments
Yet we both became friends through life’s rigmarole
We scribbled randomly on each other’s leaf plain palms
As our deepest emotions were conveyed through the soul
Then one day as I scribed “It’s time for me to go”
For a moment everything came to a complete standstill
And continual tears flowed down his ashen face
Those heart-breaking words many times he erased.
He understood it was eventually time for him to let me go
Though eons have passed, the yearning remains timeless
We shared an indescribable and priceless bond then
A perennial smile adorns my now wrinkled face
When those fond memories come flashing by
Of unconditional love that was rare and sans any definition.
