I long to be by your side again…

 

missing2

 

The moment you walk out of the door,

And on my own I must tread,

I safely put you away, while I do my chore,

In a little corner, at the back of my head…

 

This head, you say is always buzzing,

So You, I’ve  kept in a quiet place,

A place I don’t go often; for I mustn’t be misusing,

Not the time to go week, I must run this race…

 

On my toes, I juggle around,

Doing your part and my bit too,

And then at night, when all is wrapped and wound,

I scribble the things I’d say to you…

 

Days crawl into weeks,

I smile, I laugh, I  live,

My heart for You, no longer seeks,

I love you so, I’ve learnt to give…

 

Finally, this day is here,

The mask I wear, I need no longer,

I’m no Superwoman, devoid of fear,

I need you so, I can’t be stronger…

 

My heart rejoices, you’ll soon be here,

Minutes crawl like hours,  a long, long day,

My body aches, I fight back a tear…

So many feelings, kept at bay,

 

Now I’m happy, now I’m sad,

My heart is sinking,  I cannot smile,

‘He’ll be gone again”, says my stupid head,

“Stop it!”, I say, don’t want to think, not now, not for a while…

 

And when I do remember, that you’ll be gone again,

I’ll admonish myself, I’ll be a little stern,

“Live this moment or it will be in vain”,

“Make the most, until his next return…”

You-Come-Home-

Happy Diwali to all people reading this blog. May the Festival of lights light up your lives and dispel any darkness that you feel in your hearts and your minds.

      Thank you so much Andrea for the wishes. ☺ . You made the poem so apt for Diwali by your comment ,for the festival is celebrated when the king and his wife return after 14 years of exile. ☺. Yes the wait was rewarded on Diwali. Xxx

    When you wait for someone, isn’t passing of days starts to feel more longer..

      The waiting feels longer when the day of returning is near. I believe the mind knows initially that it has to wait so it occupies itself.
