A poem reflecting on life’s journey into the beyond, by Mohd Nasir Hashim.

In this ever-changing

world of ours

you are ever free

to dictate the future

Yet we face the

solemn truth

That we are in


On a journey to

fathom existence

At times sliding on a

slippery path

to differentiate

choice and destiny

We are born today

yet gone tomorrow

So don’t cling onto

this material world

ever so tightly

For it cannot

compensate the

emptiness within

For Love is the only

mighty door

to grace Wisdom,

Beauty and


And that day will

surely come

When we must bid

farewell and transit

into another world

So dry away your

tears my love

And welcome this

cycle of life

To usher the dawn

of a brave new

world offering

untold imaginings

We still see you and

love you and

forever within your

heart of hearts

Longing, cajoling

and consoling

Prodding you to move

on thru an enlightened

path of intent

So don’t distress … Don’t cry

for nobody dies

We will meet again


to share our joys,

laughter and

sorrows of


For life is too beautiful

to let it fade into


Ever in tune within

the chimes of time

To ponder upon

this elusive reality

called existence

So gaze upon the

horizons and

reflect upon


And you will surely

recognise the

essence and

intention of the

One Absolute Truth
