The Diagnosis!

Image credit; Gennaro Leonardi @ Pixabay

The diagnosis, screeched their busy schedules to a grinding halt,

causing a major upheaval, it cast a somber shadow of gloom.

Allaying their fears, they emerged from the shocking daze,

draped their pain with a tapestry of mental resilience.

Chucking their jobs, they filled their bucket list with wishes unlimited,

 set out to live the handful of remaining life, fulfilling each of them.

They traveled far and wide, discovered new facets about each other,

laughed to their hearts content, indulged in childish pranks.

In a battle against time, they walked down the reminiscent boulevard,

energizing their grieving hearts with gracious gratitude.

Savoring every moment together, they lived life to the fullest,

creating beautiful memories, before death would do them apart.

    What a touching poem! ๐Ÿ˜ข So so painful. Such a poignant and ingenious take, Mam. Extremely bittersweet- the sweet moments spent together with the bitterness of an eternal separation. Beautiful poem as ever!

    This is so beautiful Radhika. Instead of giving up and living in gloom, they chose to celebrate life. Thanks for joining in with this inspiring story.

        Indeed, very few would do this. Others will cling to hope, wasting precious moments which can be better spent

    one of the off season is the reason
