Rest In Peace

Flashing TV images
Condoling messages
Innumerable memories
Anecdotes and tributes
Exchange of smiles and tears
Days of mourning
And minutes of silence

A beautiful soul
A brilliant mind
A humane heart
A smiling face
A charismatic style
A humble demeanor

But not faded
The light still glows
And will shine till the end

In your words
In your achievements
In your relations
In your courage
In your dreams
In your vision
And your determination

Rest in Peace, Abdul Kalam
