NaPoWriMo: Day 16 – Wouldn’t Change a Thing

Day 16 of the Poetry Writing Challenge, was to write a letter- poem. A poem similar to letter writing. It could be in the form of a letter to a person, place or thing or in the form of a back and forth correspondence.


Thanks to the challenge, I drafted the one below .Was an opportunity to rekindle the past.


My dearest darling,


It’s been a while,

Two decades and a quart to be precise,

It’s funny how quickly time flies,

And you’re still the reason behind my smile.


The past still fresh, with closed eyes, I see,

As strangers we met, in a far away land,

Frightened and unaware of the future planned,

Of destiny’s mysterious, sweet conspiracy.


Classmates, friends we happened to be,

Oblivious and untrusting of the way ahead,

Was it the blind heart that had ruled or the mighty  head?

I can’t tell, for what is, was, what was meant to be.


For not a thing in the world, would I trade,

The laughter, the tears, the dreams or the fears,

The doubts, the cheers or the difficult years,

Entwined into a weave so rare, so precious, made.


If ever, I had to go back again, to that far away land,

Where two paths crossed and a journey began,

I would take the same turn and follow the same plan,

Every hurdle, every trouble, now I’d fearlessly withstand.


I’d make the same choices over and over again,

No changes, no alterations, no makeover,

I’d tread the same path that leads to you again,

My darling, my friend, my soulmate forever.


Yours Forever & Ever,

      It’s beautifully tragic. I believe in hope and positivity so the end is not something I can relate to. I like the concept of the shore.
      Thanks for asking for my opinion:)
