God Please Bless Him

where i live
indians use to stay
for short term
two to three years
after which they go
back to india stashed
with hard earned cash

to start out a new life
perhaps never before
imagined possible.

the malaysian miracle
reaches out to them too

however every time one
of them leaves, a piece
of me too goes missing too

the forlorness to see a
man walking with good ideals
suddenly missing on my paths

it is like reading a book
with a page torn and you
never get to know what
ever happens to the character
in those pages

in this case, it is at the back
of the book

you can only wish and
overcome those lingering
feeling of loss by saying
'God please bless Him.'

sweet, John. Yes, we all know that feeling of someone 'missing' from passing us on daily rounds.
