For Her The Bell Tolls

by Uttam Gill (writer), BOMBAY(MUMBAI), January 13, 2013

watch the video

It is not, when death is nearer, the bell tolls…Bell tolls too in honor of someone who gives life to others

As the winter set in, the summer in my heart sing spring

The bell tolls but for whom

For the one who placed seasons in me

As the dawn breaks, she wakes up with me in my thoughts

Who is she? She is, for whom the bell tolls

As the day progress and noise increases

She comes and calms my nerves

For her the bell tolls

Seasons of life has withered her

But she resists the withering of others

She germinates hope

For her the bell tolls

The one who lives and the one who gives

I pray, I plead, when I die

Toll the bell for her who gave me seasons of life

Yes for her the bell tolls

The bell tolls for them who make other lives too?

Toll the bell for her, so in death, I smile and she lives

For her the bell tolls

Simply beautiful, Uttam. You are a true poet. Your words are from the depths of your heart. :)

By the way, I LOVED the video. I loved the bells; they reminded me of days spent in choir. Thank you!
