      A very dear friend, already a heart patient, recently survived another massive heart attack. To give him hope and also prepare him for the truth, I wrote the following lines:

      MY TIME IS NOT UP YET

      My weakened heart
      When It skips a beat
      I sometimes worry,
      Has my time come?
      In a little while,
      An inner voice speaks
      No, my dear, not yet
      Your time is not up yet
      Oil, cholesterol and smoking
      Theyíve all tried their best
      With arteries clogged,
      And multiple stents
      After every bypass,
      I bypass death
      Every now and then,
      I hear people whisper
      I think this time,
      He may not survive
      But here I am,
      Kicking and alive
      For my time is not up yet
      When I climb the stairs
      Holding on to the rails
      Difficult breathing
      And rising pulse rate
      Panting like a dog
      As if IĎve just run a race
      I start thinking again
      Am I at the end?
      My heart speaks for itself
      No, not yet
      My time is not up yet
      When I am on a walk
      Trudging along
      Like an old hog
      This piercing pain
      In my chest
      Hits me like a knife
      As I fold, fumble and stumble
      Not knowing whether
      Iíll ever be able to stand
      On my two feet again
      I hear it once more
      Yes, youíll be back again
      As your time is not up yet
      When I lay still
      After taking a pill
      Counting my pulse
      Without much skill
      In my thoughts deep
      As I go to sleep
      I sometimes worry
      Will I ever wake up?
      Is this my final sleep?
      The realization hits hard
      Of course, my dear, you would
      For your time is not up yet
      I sometimes ask
      If health is wealth
      Then what is life?
      I am alive and kicking
      By the Grace of Almighty
      Thank Allah for what we still have
      Would somebody please tell my wife?
      That my time is not up yet
      I sometimes wonder
      When I go wander
      They might find me
      In the woods, yonder
      Lying in a heap
      Crying like sheep
      Writhing in pain
      About to doze off
      Into my final sleep
      In my heart, I know
      This end is inevitable
      Tomorrow could be it
      Prepare to live alone, my love
      For I may soon be gone
      I just canít stay any longer
      When my time is up
      If I donít wake up tomorrow
      Itíll be a day of sorrow
      Iíd feel good,
      If only you would
      Be gentle, cool and thorough
      When you hear the final beep
      And the graph rises steep
      Followed by a straight line
      Iíll be fast asleep
      When they put me in a sack
      After the final attack
      You must understand
      There is no coming back
      Let me go in peace
      Donít cry over me
      As it wonít bring me back
      You must stay here
      Even when Iím not there
      Donít fret after me
      Looking everywhere
      Youíll join me one day
      When your time, too, is up
      I shall wait for you
      Beyond earthly horizons
      As you ascend the skies
      Ever Graceful, clad in white
      In the company of angels
      Like a fairy, in paradise
      You shall find me standing
      Like always, wearing a smile
      Waiting for you, my lovely bride
      At the doorstep to Heavens
      With arms outstretched wide
      Ready to embrace
      The love of my life
      With an thumping heart
      And a beaming smile
      Holding your hand
      Shall I escort you to
      Our newest reside
      Till then, stay blessed, stay alive
      My beloved, my life!

      Guru
