Praveen Kumar in Simply Yours

65. Love - Poem by Praveen Kumar in Simply Yours

She sprang from the time's tapestry,
Like full moon, from the spread of night sky,
And streamed soft light all over him;
She blew over his heart's barrenness
Like the gust of westerly wind do to clouds
And poured sprightly rain of joy.

Rise and fall in time's cycles
In unceasing rhythms is life;
A skyward climb discovers descend,
A fall to a gulf signals upswing;
Rise and fall go hand in hand
To the horrors of love-struck souls;
Unknown hopes and unknown fears
Deepen passions and strengthen bonds.

Dawn and dusk are not far afar
And ill luck struck the love-laden souls;
The lovers met the dusk in dawn
And shattered in pain of parting so soon.

The ill-struck souls lost each other
And felt a fall from heaven to hell;
All beauty was shattered, all joy, lost,
All hope was squeezed, contentment, crushed;
For, love does not wait for time's swing,
But bides on steadfast patient growth,
Day after day and age after age.

They now sit across the gulf of time
And crave for each other,
Oblivious of what is in store ahead,
For, they see nothing beyond each other.
