A Tribute


A tribute to Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
A precious life lost
great loss to the world
a humble man who
held a prominent post
was a beacon of light
to the youngsters
inspiring them with words
of wisdom
an icon for the youth
at an age when one
ceases to live
his indomitable spirit
eager for imparting knowledge
at institutions big and small
always smiling and encouraging
to make their dreams come true
a demigod he proved to all
when he was no more
a blessed death
the way he hoped to die
to die while teaching
and the almighty listened
and fulfilled his wishes
a great soul unparalleled.
