Years From Now….

Years From Now.... short poem

When I first saw you, He nudged me and gave me a sign.
I thought it was just over thinking of a melancholy heart.
Time passed by, we passed by each other,
Another bell rang; another gust of wind blew me towards you.
“No!”, I thought to myself,
It’s too wrong, or maybe, too good to be true!
Amidst this all, we became friends,
And began an endless trail of craving,
As I craved for you and to see you,
Went to the Earth’s end.
Sometimes, I found you,
The others, I thought I’d never do.
Love, they say,
creeps and seeps into you as water in a sponge.
And till that moment, I thought I was a made of flesh and bone,
And not porous a sponge.
I raised my hands and asked him,
“Why? Why now?”
He spoke in a low whisper,
“It’s part of your plan; don’t ask me why;
don’t ask me how.”
I, awestruck and perplexed, listened, believed Him;
And in submission, I did bow.
But with time come revelation, experience and enlightenment.
You will dwell in me forever.
Although, ‘Destiny’ intends to make it just a lay-over.
It’s burdensome, when she knows you are a tough nut,
And no matter what, will contain you………..but!
How I wish, Karma had the guts to confront her!
She digs some, she tricks some,
And others, she delights in persecuting, pestering;
And we are an inseparable twosome!
For you, my friend, my deliverer,
I have to say something tonight.
Words fail me, my voice is choked;
My heartbeat goes aflutter, and I have sweaty palms.
You saved me from the tempest that I was in.
Unknowingly, you brought me to the end of the dark tunnel.
I saw light, I saw beauty, I felt the joy…..
And the most eminently, I saw you;
You by my side!
He nudged me again; I knew good Karma always did pay!
You have given me endless smiles,
Myriad memories to last a lifetime.
Although, it cannot be, yet I wish to,
To see you every day; to speak more often to you.
But this is not going to be, I know.
Life takes its toll on us and we get lost in the grind.
Still, I would earnestly want to be in you,
somehow, tucked up in a dark corner of your fondest memories.
And when years from now, you dust-off that niche,
You’ll be reminded, how there was one fervent, though, sometimes whacky soul,
Who loved you more than her own self and craved you so.
Keep me safe in your heart, friend;
As I have kept you.
Let me believe for the rest of my life
That the way I loved somebody,
I was loved back the same way, too.

The wheels find, the track on my body, why do I shiver & tremble? The night gives me the depth, a grim reminder of realism. The consortium of thorns, the splinters float in my eyes. The dignified seizure, takes hold
