In Your Absence - Poem by Nilika Athauda

Sun would shine flowers will bloom
Bees may fly for nectar
Winds will blow - clouds will flow
Rain may fall down harder
Birds will chirp - squirrels will jump
Things be fine with nature
While the world's move on -The clock ticks by
I'd be stoned and alone no wonder……


Poet's Notes about The Poem

When you feel so close to someone, you feel that person's absence, make your mind wonder.
