A Look At Life-97

A LOOK AT LIFE-97
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MIHANTY

BE WITH ME

You have seen the world
So also I
You have travelled a lot
Dined and wined
So also I
I matched your steps in every field
Be it in air, water or on earth
People recognise us from a distance
We have nothing to prove
Our success is our trademark

I have so much to share
The same may be with you
Now there is the much-needed leisure
We have been looking forward to since long
Let us for a change sit together for a while
Share our feelings
And look at each other
The way we used to
When I was your sweet bride
And you are my handsome bridegroom

What are you looking at?
My eyes, cheeks, neck and skin
Yes I have grown old
So also you
We are struggling to keep us young
By hiding ourselves in heavy makeup
But our wrinkles tell the real story
Our mirror says we are not the same
As we were long before

Do you remember
When I last told you
I love you and you reciprocated
It must be long since
We are staying under one roof
But we have not met since years
Whenever we met, we met in parties
As strangers

Can you recollect
How our kids smiled and started walking
For the first time
Their first nursery rhyme
Progress report and parent teacher's meeting
Their petty wishes and trifling demands
How they grew up and developed
Socialising with faces
Which are not their father's and mother's
You have hardly seen their childhood
These moments will never come
You have missed them forever

We never lived
We missed our life
Our life is the story of our success
Parade of ego and nothing else
We have lost all those beautiful moments
Which could have been ours

I don't want to go outside
No more I am hungry for success
I want you by my side
Let the 'I' merge in you and 'you' in me
What remains is we
Our tears and smile
I have enough tasted that saltless curry
People call success
You are my world
And I am your love.
Let us celebrate life
Be with me
I will be with you
Right in front
For the rest of life
Enjoying every bit of it,
Listening to its symphony
Relishing the moments
And be with its ebb and tide
