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. ❤
