Lone Pearl Lost Somewhere

Today I am with you,
Tomorrow I would go,
Searching for my life,
I will miss you though...

I would walk on forever,
Never wishing to turn,
Crossing the thorns,
Striding fast to learn...

Searching for my success,
Stepping for my goals,
Comfort left behind,
Shoes with torn soles...

After kissing my destination,
I would turn back my gaze,
Thinking what all I lost,
During accomplishment of life's maze...

Tears of unhappiness,
Would quietly sparkle in my eye,
While searching for my successes,
Why I left you to cry...

Then I would see,
Whatever I achieved diffusing in thin air,
Because my lone pearl,
Was lost long back somewhere...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is an old time family story between a husband and her teenager wife.
(earlier in India, child marriage was practised)

This is a tale, where a man has got a government job at some far off place.
He is leaving his 16 year old wife all alone in his village and going alone.

After passing few months he realises that his better half is better than far-off job...

LOVE IS PREFERED TO EVERYTHING.
