Prayers for Mridu

And then suddenly, one day you hear.
That which you were dreading for so long.
An email, spoken softly

tears the heart.
You start questioning god
Really? Is he there?

Mridu is not here anymore. The D5 family is in deep sorrow.

Edna St. Vincent Millay:
Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.
