Love Is Around - Poem by Bishnupada Sethi

You sat across
And talked mundane matters
While not noticing-
I was becoming restless.

I expected
To get few clues
How you valued our past-
In between what we talked.

Quite a lot of water
Seems to have been drained out
Since the high floods of our lives had
Washed us almost away
At very unusual times of our lives.

No promises were made then.
We didn't know the path forward.
Yet the hearts united-
Two minds thought alike.

Tracing and extrapolating,
Going back and forth,
Breathing in and out,
About a relationship so intimate
Gives beautiful earthly feelings.
Love is around.
It binds us together
Whether you speak about or not.
We exist.
We know each other.
We feel the love
In thought
In words
And in deep silences.

    A lovable relationship motivates mind and fills inner heart with beauty and values. Love unifies life with perception about others. Life is full of worries and tension. Love acts as balm to heal mind. We feel eternal essence of love in the deep silence. Love has power of transformation. An outstanding poem is very beautifully penned. I am giving you full mark i.e.10 in rating for the vote. (Report)Reply
