I know you no longer wish me each morning,
Still my eyes search you when I wake up.
I don’t know why..

I know you’ll never answer me,
Still I keep on dialing your number.
I don’t know why..

I know you can’t listen to my words,
Still I talk to you for hours on end.
I don’t know why..

I know you can never be with me again,
Still I feel you are right here,sharing my hardships.
I don’t know why…

I know you are quite lonely there,
But I’m helpless,your little baby needs her father.
You know why..

ANWESA said…
Each morning I turn to wish you
But kiss loneliness instead
And then I remember why

I rush to answer your call
And the stop in mid track
because I have suddenly remembered why

I want to be with you again
To share my life with you... but I wont
And I remember why

I look at the little girl who sleeps
Missing her father, who she'll never see
And I have never forgotten why...

Perspectives. Thought I could be the mother and if this was the father who has written it.

I first thought maybe death had parted the two, but then I realised that need not be the case..

So just an attempt. Hope you dont mind..

Great thought and poem there :)

I cannot remember my mother,
only sometime in the midst of my play
a tune seems to hover over my playthings,
the tune of some song that she used to
hum while rocking my cradle.

I cannot remember my mother
but when in the early autumn morning
the smell of the shiuli flowers floats in the air,
the scent of the morning service in the
temple comes to me as the scent of my mother.

I cannot remember my mother
only when from bedroom window
I send my eyes into the blue of the distant sky,
I feel that the stillness of my mother's gaze on my face
has spread all over the sky.

~Rabindranath Tagore
Note : This was one of  the earliest poems I read,loved and cherished.


Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
Dazzle me.
Enchant me.
And keep me waiting..
Waiting for you.

Amidst Soul-lessness

There is smoke somewhere. 
I cannot seem to figure out where. 
The lights are here, the music is here.
Has it been home here ?
Perhaps. Maybe when it did not rain.
Or maybe when it rained and it did not matter.
Maybe when I walked alone, smiling to myself. 
Or maybe when I realized I was okay.
Had it been always like this ?

Not really. 
Things clicked, took effort and blood. 
Did I do it ? Or the beasts did ? Maybe we both together,
Played this game. 
Amidst soulful solitude, it was love. 
Maybe appreciation.
Another journey, another dry spell. 
Will it ever be home again ?
