A Breeze of Your Bliss
You are now leaving, &
I've already begun bereaving,
I host this toast in celebration of our togetherness, &
For your future, I wish you an abundance of greatness.
Between us I hereby complete all exchanges of energy,
But not before revisiting - for the last time - our galleries of memory.
I am truly lost for words to thank you enough, &
I just pray, that no phase of your life is ever rough.
You were always there for me,
When even my nearest demanded a fee.
So selfless you were in your service,
That I was floored without notice.
To this orphan you were a mother,
To this ignorant you were a teacher.
To this filth you gave a shower,
To this plantless you gave a flower.
To this weak you became his power,
To this lonesome you became his lover.
You fed me abundantly,
You guided me enlighteningly.
You cleansed me healthily,
You motivated me realistically.
You strengthened me mentally,
You loved me unconditionally.
The transformation you've ignited in me is like no other, &
It is only in you that I will still seek true cover.
I've bestowed in you my undivided trust, &
Seeking your advice will always be my sole must.
Of my every creativity you are my ultimate source, &
Of my every positivity you are my driving force.
Your every smile of light,
Assured me that I'm living my life just right.
Once an ostracised outsider,
I am now my life's own leader.
What was once unthinkable,
Has already become empirical.
Awestruck, astonished, and amazed,
I reflect on how my life has phased.
How did you convert my futility to fertility?
Was meeting you really my luck, or destiny?
Was this an interplay of our karmas?
Or was this just our self-manifested dramas?
I am, afterall, nothing of yours, &
We do come from different shores.
That you made me feel so accepted,
Also makes me very indebted.
I really hope I earned your presence, &
I hope there is no pending penance.
The light you ignited within me will brighten even my path ahead,
As I will soon hear what you once left unsaid.
As strangers we met, unbounded by any obligation or relation, &
As strangers we'll remain, as we soon release our own masks of identification.
From our now-redundant relation we each achieved personal goals, &
Thus concludes our once-endless journey, between two restless souls.
