The long wait would end soon,
And I would meet you today, this afternoon.
Its been long since I met you the last time,
I’ve missed all those wonderful moments when your eyes met mine.
I’ll wear the dress you gave me this valentine,
I just wish that everything turns out to be fine.
As you hold my hand and walk with me down the street,
I forget everything else, with you I feel complete.
I am lost in your eyes, I can’t hear a thing you say,
I can spend my life just watching you, come what may.
You bring me back to my senses, as you touch my cold nose,
I smile as you say you love me, like always you say it with a rose.
Its six in the evening and you say its time for you to leave,
Seeing my eyes well up, you ask me to cheer up and not to grieve.
I capture all these moments we’ve spent together in my heart,
You touch my face and kiss me one last time before we move apart.
We hug as we move down the alley, amidst the sounds of the tram passing by,
With a smile on my lips, and tears in my eyes I bid you a final goodbye.
[I am attempting the Weekly Writing Challenge for the first time. The picture reminded me of all those days I’ve spent together with my guy. Being miles away from one another we rarely met, and even when we did, it was either at the airport, or railway or bus stations. Just once we got a chance to roam around a city, and the picture reminded me of the first and awkward hug we had at the airport that day. The poem I’ve written is not my story but its neither entirely fictional( Meeting you was more of my actual story).I know that desperation of meeting your love after a long time, the awkward initial moments, the feeling of being together for few hours and then finally parting your ways. I loved writing this one. :-)]
