To Forget Her Was Impossible - Poem by Nikhil Parekh

The Sun may have forgotten to shine at times; leaving the Earth submerged in partial darkness,
The eyes may have forgotten to close; staring unrelentingly in the blazing fires,
The trees may have forgotten to shed their leaves; enticed to sway in the moist breeze,
The birds may have forgotten to chirp; thoroughly engrossed in building their nests,
The clouds may have forgotten to rain; drifting away submissively with the wind,
The lion may have forgotten to roar; lost in the aisles of desire and sleep,
The chameleon may have forgotten to change its color; with its jaws busy in gobbling fat caterpillars,
The diamonds may have forgotten to shine; when they were placed in a disdainful backdrop of coal,
The rose may have forgotten to diffuse scent; trying to breathe for its life amidst a heap of pungent pesticide,
The scorpion may have forgotten to sting; running haywire in a pool of slushy water,
The snow may have forgotten to melt; not wanting to leave the body of the handsome mountain,
The lips may have forgotten to smile; being besieged by day to day professionalism in society,
The ocean may have forgotten to evolve waves; yielding pathetically to the tumultuous storm,
The stars in the cosmos may have forgotten to twinkle; profoundly absorbed in watching the dainty fairies,
The deserts may have forgotten to be hot; relishing the prospects of freaking out in the rain,
The fingers may have forgotten to write; resting lazily under the silken feathered pillow,
The dog may have forgotten to bark; petrified for an instant by the demon standing before him,
The infant may have forgotten to cry; bemused for a moment by the wide ensemble of electronic toys,
The Creator inadvertently may have forgotten to look at every man; busy chalking strategies to run the Universe,
But me Forgetting her was Impossible; as she resided in the center of my heart; and every beat of mine wholesomely depended upon her breath that passionately flowed.
