Always & Forever

As I drown in the sea of our memories, tonight,
I recall how you held me amidst my plight.
I didn’t know what was wrong & what was right,
In that darkest hour, you ascended to be my light.

Time stood still under the light of a million stars
& we talked for countless hours.
I felt safe showing you my bleeding scars,
because our souls entwined like the fragrance of flowers.

When tormented by life’s unforgiving schemes
& shattered to unimaginable extremes.
You sang lullabies to quell my silent screams,
You breathed life into my dying dreams.

Though things aren’t like the way they were before
Because sadly, we don’t get to talk anymore.
On us, you may have to close the door,
But our glorious past, my heart will still adore.

Parting, as you may now, attend to a personal endeavor
Still your memory from my soul, none can ever dissever.
The duration of our bond, time can never measure
Because I’ll carry you in my heart…Always & forever.

Note: They say if you like a flower you pluck it but if you truly love the flower, then you water it & watch it grow… perhaps that’s why sometimes we need to water our special bonds with our silent tears. I know sometimes I am not able to spend time with many people who are emotionally quite close to me & gradually through the passage of time it may appear as if we are strangers, but life is complicated, changes take place in an unpredictable way & our innocent desires get eclipsed by the burden of responsibilities. Through this poem I just want to express that even if we are unable to spend time or talk like the way we used to in the past, still you’ll always have a special place in my beating heart. The fragrance of our bond shall dwell in my soul always & forever. ❀

    1. No it was not for any particular individual from my past. Instead it was for all my lovely friends people with whom I have not been able to spend as much time as I want to really. Thanks Joni for the love & hugs . πŸ™‚

  2. This is a heart touching post. Life is all about change and sometimes in these changes we lose some people but that doesn’t mean we forget them. They always hold a special place in our heart. Sometimes this memories made us smile and sometimes regret, but still we hold it dear. You have expressed this whole thing beautifully.

    1. Thank you Ameet, it wasn’t for anyone specific from my past. It was for all my lovely friends who’ve supported me during my thick and thin… With whom I’m not able to spend much time now, sadly… Humbled by your generosity brother πŸ™πŸ˜Š

  3. Every person we meet/ talk makes an impact in our life. Some people will always hold that special place irrespective, we are in talking terms or not.
    You have put these emotions so beautifully in words Sidharth.

    1. Yes at the end of the day we all our reduced to a memory in someone’s life. We should just try our best to be remembered as a good one in someone’s mind. Thanks Shivani for your lovely thought. πŸ™‚

  4. It should always be the way it was before whenever the two or three people talk. An individuals life for his or her own self is a priority. So at times this happens.
    Wonderful writing. Cheers. Happy Day πŸ™‚

    1. Absolutely, always & forever! Just like the banter between us about Paneer, the goodness of our friendship is timelessly incorruptible. Thank you for your readership, support & most importantly your friendship πŸ™‚

  5. At times, we can’t make up to be with the persons we want, for whatever reason. And it’s during that time, we cherish the bonds that we create. And if it’s same on the other side as well, that is evidently a relationship beyond the barriers of time. The joy we get when we catch up with them and realise that nothing has changed, is incomparable! And lucky are we to have them with us.

    Souls entwined like the fragrance of flowers! I am hinged to this line.
    And I loved the last two lines.

  6. It’s amazing how it made me feel like something is changing, it reminded me of the feeling we had for school or college farewell. We want to stay in place and with people forever but we also have to let it go and either ways we win and lose at the same time.

    1. Yes i guess in life its about how gracefully you let go of things & people as we move forward. The outcome might be different from what we anticipated but yes the memories always remain precious. Thank you so much for the lovely feedback πŸ™πŸ˜

  7. Your poetry feels raw. I absolutely loved the stanza:

    “When tormented by life’s unforgiving schemes
    & shattered to unimaginable extremes.
    You sang lullabies to quell my silent screams,
    You breathed life into my dying dreams.”

    The analogies you make are intriguing and relatable. Thank you for sharing! I look forward to reading more of your work!!
