Letting You Go...
Okay, this one poem is really very close to my heart. This is written for my best friend, Shivani.
She is going away for her further studies. And I can just silently watch her go away. It's the most difficult thing in the world, to see you best friend going apart. I would have been a little happier if I had any means of contact with her. But, in her hostel and college, even mobiles are not allowed. So I am not sure when I would be able to talk to her next.
Letting you go….
I saw the most dreadful dream,
Saw that you were slipping away,
While I was happy for you,
Yet, I couldn’t convey.
I knew that it was best for you,
Yet, I felt the pain,
However unhappy I was,
I had no right to complain.
You were just pursuing your dreams,
While I was doing the same,
But that didn’t explain the pain,
That, with the distance, came.
I knew I had to let you go,
And miss you all the while,
I had to be happy for you,
And even fake a smile.
I was genuinely happy for you,
Just my heart ached a little,
For you were going away from me,
Going away, a little far.
I knew that no more would we meet,
There would be no more talks,
Even though we would be in touch,
We wouldn’t be there to side-walk.
There would be no more hugs,
No more time spent together,
For you were going to study out,
Who knows when we would meet, if ever?
With a little smile on my face,
I wished you the best in life,
I watched you go away,
With tears brimming in my eyes.
Love you a lot Shivi....I know I am good at hiding my feelings for someone, but it never had been the case with you. I am always gonna be there for you. Just a call away :)
