I do not grieve you,
grief is too personal to share;
you signified what true living meant,
to undermine your spirit will not be fair.
You shall always live through me,
not in person, but through your values;
the guiding light behind my each move,
the undying spirit that defined you.
Your noble soul,
your sincere approach to life;
is like a scripture I can seek,
whenever troubles are lurking close.
You saw my talents,
and nurtured them to perfection;
when at times, I saw none,
you said doubting myself was out of question.
You countered my endless questions,
with your signature patience and smile;
each life day marked by pristine affection,
each action sincere, with your unique style.
I can see a glimpse of you,
when I put up a brave fight;
my fighting spirit, to you I owe,
helps me differentiate wrong from right.
You continue guiding me,
through flowers and birds;
though physically missing,
I seek you through your words.
My life will never be the same,
your loss I can never get over;
but I promise I will never fail you,
always give my best in all I do.
