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”.
