Thirty Minutes

On the day of my entrance to adulthood,

Half of one of those 24 hours was spent in your presence.

Let me tell you,

that those 30 minutes were the most special ever.


Very special indeed.

More than my graduation,

More than my first date,

More than my wedding.

Just too special.

The anxiety,

the excitment,

the happiness,

all combined to ignite a

lustful lush love.

Not much was said, though

Not little was felt.

The feelings.

As Ineffable as they may be.

Their presence were just

Too lovely to resist.

Right from our meeting room,

I've laid you right at the centre,

of my every heartbeat.

Now I won't just remember

those special moments, which

in time's own language,

were thirty minutes long.

I shall make you a member

of me, myself and my soul.

And in my every living moment,

You'll live within me as one whole.


I need not look afar,

I need not remember the past,

I need only,

to look within,

in the now.

Where I shall see no thing,

for love isn't a ''thing''.

Its just being felt,

from now unto eternity...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
