Gaariye (So October begins)

Your soul has departed from this world
but your words will be
 uttered of the ones who weep
and your Poems will live
deep within your words 
You'll truly be missed 
most inspiring poet I ever read 
the genius who made words come to life 

death seems like an unwanted surprise
and life is a trail full of cries 
reading your poems 
entwined my mind 
So October begins 
rain falls from the skies of the undying blue 

Oh how we all have secrets King gooja 
poetry is the whispers
 of our crying souls
shhhh... as the rain falls
So October begins 
we sing your poetry 
whisper under our breath 
and when I'm done writing 
I sigh and turn 

and see King Gooja's hidden secret 
just like the
 kudu's horns reappear
