Countless memories and a snowflake | S. F.

I keep imagining ...
As if you are still here
Just a phone call away.

It was just another day,
When you called
Worried that its your first winter, I asked:
How do you feel?
You said that
you loved the winter
‘Mujhe to bohot maza aa raha hai!’

And yes ...
You were waiting for the 25th of November ...
Waiting eagerly for the first snowfall ...

But you left so suddenly
Before it ever came ...

The scene from your window would have been so beautiful
Only if you had been here ...

Almightly Allah has taken you close to Him
Coz He loves you more dearly, my brother ...

And now you would witness the snow all around you ...
The snow you loved so much ...

A lonely snowflake stands by your graveside ...
It represents our love and says that it misses you too!

Allah Hafiz ... until we meet again,
With undying love,
- Bala
