Donot Loosen The Grip - Poem by samyak jain

do not loosen the grip,
for tomorrow i may need you most.

as strangers we met,
while negotiating an unseasonal downpour
near the club house,
underneath a caesalpinea tree,

what magic the clouds wove,
what fragrance the flowers released,
what madness the thirsty earth spread,
what silent words our hearts exchanged,
we have stayed friends ever since.

donot please loosen the clasp now,
i have found a soul mate in you,
different climes, different languages,
so what, we say,
we speak the language of love,
of togetherness, of poetry,

dont you ever say
you may leave me one day.
as long as life is there,
grip and clasp are bound to get loose,
but
if life departs,
then
cannot our poetry
hold the clasp
as strong as
you and i would like it to be.

.....a t p
dedicated to i.

    My Goodnees god
    How Come and How Come
    We writers write
    In one or the other way
    About Grip and Clasp! !
    Is that we feel so loose
    That we fear of flying
    To a farway land
    And then write a poem
    'Ohhh I am Lonely'

    Coming to this poem..
    Hummm.. YUMMY..... it is...

    I am in search of that Caesalpinea tree! !
