When I am Gone

Keep me alive in your memories when I am long gone
Everlasting and sacrosanct , a bond so strong
No words can describe the emotions we have endured
Many a blemishes they have healed and hurts they cured

Difficult paths we have traversed together hand in hand
Placing faith in each other difficult for others to understand
Why did it all have to perish wistfully this way
Why didn’t you just beg once and impelled me to stay

My shadow will follow you no matter where you go
Though veritably the distances between us continue to grow
My beloved, we may turn into complete strangers some day 
And forget every sentiment that we share today

Our paths in future may not ever cross again
For the sake of the forgotten love let us liberate the blame
Let our souls search for solace together just one last time
And make precious memories that are not just yours or mine

Like our relationship ,with time these shall not fade
Like precious treasures on the mantle they shall be placed
I shall be at peace then in another world perhaps
While you reminisce in solitude lest your world shall collapse
