Few silent applauses

I have known you for long years.

Suddenly you are no more.

I couldn't bid you goodbye.

It was a painful final separation.

You were a celebrity,

but you never made me feel so,

and you remained so till the end.

When you are gone, there is fanfare,

you wouldn’t approve, had you a say.

A few silent applauses would suffice.

Soon another spring will come.

The flowers will bloom again.

A silent spectator will continue to miss you.
