A Farewell

A FAREWELL

Meeting and parting have always been a part and parcel of life. Although both are sides of the same coin yet one gives pleasure while other is a source of pain and grief. Farewell is one such occasion where our grief of parting is garnished with best wishes for the life ahead of the one going away. We also reminisce about the memories the person leaves behind for us to cherish. What we all can do that we can pray for her to move ahead in life with courage and lots of optimism. Here I would like to recite a poem. The poem is called ‘Prayer’ written by Amritbir:

PRAYER

God give me the courage

to surge ahead

and not inch forward

towards the long lost dreams;

a chance to fulfill

dreams I cherished

and wipe away the broken bits.

Reaffirm the faith in man,

of man’s goodness and goodwill.

Give me the wisdom to know

what is right,

and mettle to mend the wrong.

Let me not fall flat

on the mountains of hope,

let me see the light bright

at the end of the dark, dreary tunnel.

Give me the days when I am

unfazed by the obstacles,

unmoved by the setbacks,

and unscathed by the stones thrown.

Let me just move on…

WE FARE THEE WELL…!
