The day you died, leaving me forever in darkness
A clock started in my mind
A now cold emotionless vacuum
Twenty-six years at most
When my time will finish on this earth too
So much work to be done, so many responsibilities
To raise your son, get him married
To raise your grandchildren with your memories
To make life easier for mom
To care for my life partner
Yet wondering with ticking clock
Do I have even half as much as time as you?
Even now the time is slipping out of my hand like fine grained sand
The countdown to death has begun
Life has fallen somewhere in by lanes.
