Unnamed (Re-post)

You left the
Fairy-tales untold
Lullabies unsung
Photos untouched

I left my
Questions unasked
Beliefs unchallenged
Poems unread

We left
Garden paths untrodden
Ripe mangoes uneaten
Paper boats unmade

Now all you have left is
An eternity beneath the earth
And all I have left is a wish 
To undo all that we left undone.




Oh letter U, what have I done to earn your wrath? Sorry for not putting up anything new.
This poem is taken from the post In Memoriam: Two Poems for My Grandfather.
