will i

as my head hits the pillow
i think of everything i have done wrong
not right
because the former outweighs the latter
i seek yet have yet to find
what my purpose is,
to wonder if one day
when i look back at this
will i smile
wide and proud
or dim and sad
of things i should have done.
i am trying to live by you
but when did i give up
on myself?

my dearest biji

lids closed
the memory of your touch lingers
bright smile from muted lips
i blew out candles
as you watched restricted
i never asked
the question you wouldn’t have
been able to answer
when you reached out
wrapping weathered frail fingers
around my wrist
i knew
fast forward five
and i wonder if the jalebis up there
are to your liking?
