Your Beautiful Symphony

What do I tell your brother
He’s angry
Frayed around the edges
His beard hasn’t seen a razor
He thinks his is of no matter
Yours he wanted gray

Cheated of what would have been
Not for him, but for you

I want to tell him that
While your three decades
Suggest an unfinished symphony
In truth you conducted every note
Long before your time
You took life in
Unconditionally
With a full embrace

The ones old in their beds
Hear cacophonies
You knew all that they
Know in their ripe age

We’ll stumble through
Listening for your opus

For now, though,
The time is slow
And our pain
Still crude
Raw and bitter

- Hema

A beautful poem for a truly beautful person. Anuj's symphony speaks so well of his calm, his composure and the way in which his life inspires others. We all will strive to be better people because of him. -Chaitanya

This poem was so beautiful. I read it over and over again. His symphony will play on forever in our hearts because music is said to be the speech of angels.
