 Fiction The Last Birthday Gift To The Stranger Merry Christmas and Happy birthday, stranger Photo by Kira auf der Heide on  Unsplash Aakriti is only a stranger to Raj. He first saw her at Nepal literature festival in Kathmandu, Nepal. It wasn’t a proper meet because he hadn’t noticed her then.

His soul continues to breathe he sprays water to roses hoping neither of them dies hoping they both live for one more day where they can hope for one more. She never came back she decided she won’t.

All saw dead roses being sorry for its loss but the dead soul within him no one cared to search and remained invisible forever. Suraj Ghimire  2020 This poem was first posted on
