via Daily Prompt: Vanish

I kept on following your footprints,                                                                                                           searching for you.                                                                                                                                         But all of a sudden,
you vanished away.

Within a moment, you leaped into nothingness.                                                                              Your mere presence turned into absolute emptiness.                                                                       Silent & numb,
you laid there,                                                                                                                                                   as if you were having your sweetest dream.                                                                                             Calm & composed, beyond serenity, that was what you meant to seem.

Though you vanished away into eternity,
your memories couldn’t.
In case, I remained oblivious of our togetherness,
my reverie would haunt.

Here, within the darkest lanes of my absolute loneliness,                                                                   I cherish all those beautiful moments that you gifted me.                                                             After all, it is the illusion of life that vanishes with death.
But the beauty of life remains the same till the last breath.
