“Before you leave come say bye,”
Said the old man
To the young boy.
Good friends they became
Just like the Little Prince visiting the plane-wrecked Antoine Saint Exupery.
Was it accident that this young boy
Landed on the 3rd Planet in the Solar System?
Gravity has its own ways to pull people together,
And separating them.
The young boy learned that he had to leave soon
So hurriedly he rushed to say bye to the village community
And the old man in it.
But just as Gravity pulls people together,
It also pulls them apart
Making it hard to say bye.
Adding to this challenge,
People decomposed fast in this world
Like old ‘mushed’ paper
People got old and decomposed.
It was hard to say goodbye,
Somehow gravity was pulling them apart,
And the old man was decomposing like paper.
Paper like people
In a paper like world.
At first we stand straight and young
But soon we become old and curled.
Like balls of ‘mushed’ paper,
People and planets spin around
Joined and separated by the force of gravity.
You throw us together
And separate us
We are born,
Not having time to say a proper goodbye.
Remember as the body dies,
The soul lives on forever with God.
(So light up the spark of Love right here, right now, and Be with God.)
