Across time, treading so softly

I move, the world’s oblivious to me

In awkward motion, most gingerly

I pace in mind prints left by thee


How to walk without leaving a trace

How to live without a shadow cast

How to look again upon your face

With no remembrance of the past?


Cold memories grip, whip me bare

Suffering was never my choice

Of misery I have had a fair share

When will I reach a place to rejoice


The will is strong but the heart so weak

Lessons, it seems, I have learnt so few

Peace and oblivion I desperately seek

Oh but to be dead again and born anew.
