We are the sum total, 
Of little things we did,
With our dear ones gone!

A simple fruit shared with a darling grandmother;
A meal cooked for me by grandfather;
An evening treat of junk food by the great uncle;
And the smile of a dying dear one as he sipped the Tea I made for him! 

These are the few things which keep,
Intense Feelings alive,
As an assurance of Being Human!
