Today, I raise my wand

A glow at it’s tip, cuz

You were the light,

Who taught us what’s right,

That to repent is wise

Once you suss what’s vice.

If only you could see,

The agony now we fell in

For our hero you were,

Their truest friend there.

I chant, “Alan beloved,

May your soul rest in peace”

Drowning in my tears.


In far futurity,

I may sit with my kids

And watch the saga again

When you say the magic word,

Feels wet my eyes

They ask, “mumma,

After all this time?”

And I repeat after you,


~ It was late last night, I got to know the heartbreaking news of Alan Rickman’s demise. First I thought it’s just another media stunt, but then it was everywhere. For the first time, I cried over a celebrity death. Because he was one such an actor, who lived a character in and out. He was Snape. He had magic in his voice. Every potterhead’s pride. He made a small word and a 3 digit page number eternal.. That small word became the synonym for love. Here’s my humble try of a tribute to Alan Rickman..
