Standing here; amidst noise and shadows.
The soft light radiating beneath your eyes.
Taps gently at the hollow recess; of my mind.
No, I didn’t forget…
Those times; when the moon rises in your eyes
And your smile makes even the morning sun shy
I knew then, as vivid as I know now
You were a beautiful metre;
an alluring part of an unfinished piece.
So I immortalized you;
In unfading lines of poetry
Till wild winds blow you here again
And white petals feel the drops of rain
Waiting patiently; in this soft meadow
Listening to the whispers of the wind in the willow
Searching for the pleasant beat; of your anima heart.
As it screams gently;
“Forget me not”.
