A Statement Of Fact - Poem by Ravinder Kumar Soni
We have met once, you and I,
Near the Qutab Hotel;
It was evening-time,
You had then sought directions from me.
You were wearing
A light-blue salwar-kameez and a laced dupatta,
Your dark hairs tied in a tight bun,
A bindi shone on your forehead and lips coloured crimson-red,
I was taken in by you.
Through my eyes and ears
I had absorbed
And made you a part of me;
I can never forget you.
All things seen, said and heard,
During those brief moments,
Remain firmly etched in my memory;
It was as though Time had stood still.
Since then, my love for you has grown more,
And now you accompanying me everywhere
I cannot think of anything else.
I have wanted to write about those moments
But I have not dared; fearing I may not find proper words;
I cannot forsake those moments,
It was then that I had felt a deep love for you.
Though I have not seen you ever since,
I have asked Time to make this possible;
I trust Time, but it too has its specific priorities,
Unlike my mind, it never looks back or grieves,
It holds no regrets,
It simply marches on at a steady pace.
You are my sole fortune,
My love for you also moves on hopefully
At an even pace, low-keyed and without frills.
