You never know until you try
What you really meant to me
What I am to you
What we can b e when we are together
When you can break the silence
Just say “I believe you”
Which is more precious to me than love?
I am lost without you
In this world of calculations
Quaint amidst chaos…
Searching for you like a shadow
Like a child in a carnival
Preserved like an antique
Which no body wants to take home
I always look for you..
Are you there for me or not?
I know you, yet Checking
Over my shoulder of responsibilities
My untold inhibitions and fears
Hidden deeply in my heart’s closet
Which you only can wipe-off with just a shrug..
I am waiting for you forever
In the light and darkness of life
In my automatic routine things
I See you whenever and wherever
Similar to a ray of hope
I always hope to come true
Why I’m never tired of waiting?
Are you tired of trying? ..
Well you never know until you try..
Walking thru shadows
Numb mind and thoughts freezed
Wry smile at the corner of lips,
Remember the day when you left me forever..
Trees are listening
Nodding their heads with devotion
As if they are feeling my pain,
Gives me solace which humans can’t give
Creek of the porch gate
Hum of the curtain saying it’s all over
Hurried breeze to take my tear away,
Saying I am not alone….
Surprised why I feel?
When I have you in and with my soul,
But… believe me
You will never go if you look back once…
