When end is near

Its been a while I blogged or wrote, but this piece of poetry moved me. Probably one of the best lyrics I have read/heard. Speaks about someone who is nearing his end, and how he would love to end it. Moved by this one.

We come to this world may be of no-choice ( its just a sperm who does the crime), but we can choose to exit in a way we want to. The only intention is to celebrate the phase between the entry and exit.

Written by Rafeeq Ahmed in Malayalam for the wonderful movie called Spirit which deals with Alcoholism and Narcissism.

The YouTube link below has the entire song, and yes for many people like me who doesn’t understand the poetic Malayalam/ or even the language can follow the translation below.

Near the end please my dearest sit for a while by my side,
Let the fingers numbed by wading through embers be soothed by touching you.

Let your sweet essence be there in the last breaths I take in,
Near the end please my dearest sit for a while by my side.

Let the image of your face drown in the eyes that will not see any more, dearest
Let these ears that will not hear any more be drenched in the sweet sounds of your voice,
Let evergreen memories about you shower on the brain that will soon have its intellect and conscience burn away

Near the end please my dearest sit for a while by my side.

Let the pain of the kiss of death be eased by recital of your sweet name,
Dearest, let my feet cool themselves in memory of paths it walked for you
Dearest, let my feet cool themselves in memory of paths it walked for you

That is enough for this one to be reborn as a shoot of grass through the soil I will be buried in

Near the end please my dearest sit for a while by my side.
Near the end please my dearest sit for a while by my side.

Loved the pain and the romance in it.
