The Proposal

That was the last time I saw him,
His old shirt still smelled of smoked cigar,
The sweat drops from his forehead
Reminded me of the long hours of waiting….
He was still the same with his horn-rimmed spectacles….

I remember the time when he was young,
the time when he was at his best,
he was envied by others…
then time changed, people changed, life changed…

I wonder when he proposed me that day..
What made me decline the proposal!
What made me so rude…so stubborn….
He was my best friend…my pal…my partner…
I am married now…but he isn’t…..!

He waited…at least till the last time I saw him…
I can still smell him…feel him…but…
Cannot find him……!
May be he is lost in the crowd…or went somewhere unknown…
Or may be…he’s dead….!!!

That day, that proposal…and us…
Not sure if I made a mistake…
But m sure I wasn’t God…was just another human…
Not sure if I would ever see him…
but m sure the smell of the cigar would linger…
Till m alive…..till I see him again….

 

The Wish

Tonight you kiss the sky, the leaf

And you will become the Princess…

Tonight you touch the heart, the soul

and it will become Golden…

Tonight you soar, you fly, sky-high

And you will be set Free….

Tonight you make my night

And I will become Thee.

 

Let dreams build..

And love cheer,

Let the flowers bloom…

And the Gods hear,

Let there be light…

And there will be so,

Let tonight be the night

When I love you more….
