Let Me, For Once, Move Alone - Poem by Piyush Dey

The day has bloomed as it had
promised last night,
A little hope and a little malice
has it brought with it upon it's shoulders,
And i with drowsy reveries
keep asking for the things, which
I dare I may never possess,
Today, the day has bloomed as it had
promised last night,
And the sun has dawned upon
my shoulder and my heart has
touched your feet, my father,
I know, my father, as you
told me years ago when I was more
younger and innocent, that
Life is but a journey and we ought
to move on, But, you may not be
knowing this, that-
this sunshine which has just reached
my home has come today but with a
purpose, as promised, it has come
to take her away from me,
I try to forbid it but-
I am too poor to forbid, my father,
You told me years ago
that life is but a journey,
But i am fearful, now that
she shall not be with me, now
i have to move on, my father,
alone and disheartened,
No one is here to console me
and no one to share
some tears with me, my father,
You told me years ago that life
is but a journey,
So, my strength, my father, lead me,
guide me, Oh my father,
into that vast sea of universe,
Let me for once feel its lost sweet
touch, plunge me into the deepest
breathlessness,
So that, I may never become weak
and soft-hearted, my father,
Let me, for once, move alone....

    I can feel the sense of loneliness and frustration you experience at the moment! But it is a fleeting phase! You 'll definitely be able to get over this initial disappointment and move forward with hope and strength! As your father has said... ' Life is an onward journey'! So keep moving! (Report) Reply

    May this prayer of yours is conceded and you are granted strength to take on the demon of loneliness after the departure of someone close to your heart. Sombre, heartfelt, benign. Thanks. (Report) Reply
