Each memory is kept safe in my heart,


From day one till last,

Thou came silently,

Unbeknownst to me in the very day,

Thou smiled shyly when I asked thy name,

Answered the next beside thee,

Thy introduction was new to me,

Thou elaborated thyself gradually,

Thou called me “Lala”,

Thy sole elder brother,

Thy smile and the reason of thy happiness,

Time proved to be against us,

Our unity brought rancour in the surroundings,

They intended to depart us forever,

But,

Strong relations are always of forever,

For, I still await you,

In the graveyard,

Under the shed,

In the west, near the ground.
