Final Wave


Many things can be learnt from life
Through the ups and downs, we smile and frown
But, the most important of all, I’ve learnt and taught
Is, “Today, right now, is a wonderful day”

Lend a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on
A word or two for the rest to move on
Bring a smile on faces of both known and unknown
And, you build yourself a memory to cherish upon

As evil holds me
And, thunder obstructs me
Still, I walk on,
The end cannot stop me

I will follow my will as
My life is my own
And, it cannot take me down
I will walk on
I will walk on

Once I am gone, you’ll need to carry on
The storm is closer now, I want to, but I can’t walk on
Many things unseen, many things undone
There’s no place to hide and no place to run

I’m living my life on the time, I’ve borrowed
Now, I can go in peace, I see the immortal sea
Too many memories, too many life’s that I’ve changed
Smile and keep on smiling at my final wave

Hi Bros,
Love this one!!! My favorite lines:

"I will follow my will as
My life is my own
And, it cannot take me down
I will walk on"

and then:

"Smile and keep on smiling at my final wave"

Always thought it would be great to be able to say good bye to all before our departure.

Hi, Bros-Captain of your soul, huh?
We have much in common in thoughts. I could have co-penned this probably but like how you did it. It's all about the final wave, isn't it. The rest will wash away. ~Rick

Brosreview said...

@Rikkij - Oh yea, it is all about the final wave. Sure, next time I come across a similar theme, I shall contact you. We could pen it down together. Cheers!!!

Hey, this is a wonderful post. I love the sentiments at the beginning of the piece "Bring a smile on faces of both known and unknown. And, you build yourself a memory to cherish upon."

Walker said...

I really liked this one.
Says alot about how you think and feel

Khaled KEM said...

An inspiring and a bright poem my dear friend Ajey. I feel it more as a poem more than a song.
It carries us to the rivers of hope.

Brosreview said...

@Walker - True!!! Thank you!!!

Brosreview said...

@Khaled KEM - Shokran!!!

“Today, right now, is a wonderful day”

The last lecture - brought tears first but then why tears? atleast Randy knew he had six months to live when he was diagnosed cancer... but we don't even have that guarantee...and he created memories for his family.. an adorable guy.

your poetry brought all those thoughts back...it's too good a poem... nothing more to add :)

I’m living my life on the time, I’ve borrowed
Now, I can go in peace, I see the immortal sea
Too many memories, too many life’s that I’ve changed
Smile and keep on smiling at my final wave

though farewells always are little sad... strangely i want to wave at you and keep on smiling:)

Brosreview said...

@Viji - Perfect!!! Thank you!!!

Viji said...

i shd call it a song n not poetry right? forgive me.

Brosreview said...

@Viji - Hey, please do not apologise. Umm, yea, you can call this a poem. I had a brain freeze the day I wrote this that I could not think of a melody back then.
