Walking along the road in woods,
tried to think about someone in my heart,
as I hardly found anyone there,
wandered to taste the essence of love,
with a great longing for my unknown beloved.
Having heard a smile, eternal of its kind,
sweet fragrance, my nose had ever known,
my foots failed to take a step.
Guided by them, I went closer,
divinely gifted were my eyes, they saw her.
I wished I'd talked a lot, but commenced only then.
Started with ‘hello', continued with ‘dear',
hearts shared a lot and words found no diction.
Walked for hours, yet
the tree we stood beside was at a step behind.
Flowers were spread, tender herbs waved,
as if welcoming us for a new world.
A voice came saying, " I'm there for you",
hardly I gave my ears to it.
She lead me and her words drugged me.
Flowers transcended, and the herbs felt us.
She hiccupped, I ran to the river.
She was hungry, I ran for food, while
my hunger shed tears, yet it was sweet.
Again the voice came saying, " I'm there for you",
still then I was deaf to it.
About to convey my heart,
my tongue didn't help me, it slipped.
