My Ashes

I had dreams I had hopes
I was almost there, I was so close.

This welcoming land, the sight so homely
Away for all these years, I felt so lonely.

A promising glimpse of my life, my passion, and my interest
But here I am, in peace my eternal rest.

A note I left, I want you to remember
Me? I’ll be gone with the ember.

I’ll leave in silence, I had so much to say.
I chose this life, at times I wanted out, but not this way.


This note was found at site of plane crash in Kathmandu. A passenger plane carrying 71 from Bangladesh crashed and burst into flames as it landed in Kathmandu.

    1. Hi Andrew, I am so thankful for this wonderful comment. One of the best poems you say, I am truly honored. This was the best praise I’ve ever received for my work. I could not have asked for more. Means so much.

      Thank you for noticing my absence. I hope you are doing well. I needed a break. I only had depressing stories so I decided not to post them. And I had promised myself to make a new song and share it with my followers before I made such posts. I am almost done there.

      Thank you my friend. I appreciate everything.
      Wishing you a peaceful night’s rest.


      1. I am glad I had the privilege of meeting you. I mean it. I am not sure if you’re aware but this means so much πŸ™‚
        My song I’ll put it up here very soon, within a week.

    1. You are so kind and honest. I did miss those words. It’s okay. It isnt a big deal. It happens with me too. So here is my advance apology. Just thinking a step ahead πŸ™‚

      Thank you for that wonderful comment. I needed that. Actually I was taking my time off. I have refrained from writing. Poetry lingers but I am doing my best to avoid. This was an exception. I am just taking a break. But it might be over soon. I dont know 😦

      I want to try something new. What was that app that you recommended me? I want to try that. Paint and paint and paint I am in that mood πŸ™‚

      1. Yeah…we all take breaks, I think. Go to my what I’m painting with page. There’s a link to Corel. They let You download and use their program for 30 days, I think. I’ve done it with a few of their programs. It’s very fun. Happy Painting!!! And if You have a pad and pen for Your computer, great. If not….I actually use my finger and “finger paint” on my computer just as often. It makes a more fun experience of just letting go.

        And no worries! wordpress can be strange. Things seem to change sometimes and I truly have no idea if it’s something I’m doing. 🀣
