Arun Maji


Parting - Poem by Arun Maji

Let our parting
be sweeter than our union.
Let our forgetting
be more musical than our memory.

Cloud has to part from the sky
one day or the other.
Soul has to part from the body
one day or the other.

If I loved you once
under one beautiful moon-
then why can't my love
survive our inevitable parting?

Why can't I part being in love
and carry the fragrance of love?

Why the moment of parting
has to be full of sorrow or anguish?
Why the road of parting
has to be full of blood or tears?

Once love brought us together.
Now, let our love take us far.

    This is an excellent poem calling for celebration at the time of parting and 'carry the fragrance of love' in place of this being a moment of sorrow, anguish and tears. Amazing thoughts.
    Let our parting
    be sweeter than our union.
    Soul has to part from the body
    one day or the other.

    inevitable for - we part with something everyday. when we leave our kids in school- we part, when we sell something we part, when we die- soul parts from body. Parting in different magnitude is always happening. (Report) Reply

    why
    ''inevitable parting? ''

    most of the times it is so, but not always.. thus it is not ''inevitable'' - yet, your.. ''Song of the 'inevitable parting'' is nicely written. Thanks for sharing, Arun - and.. WELCOME at P.H.!

    inevitable because we part with something everyday. when we leave our kids in school- we part, when we sell something we part, when we die- soul parts from body. Parting in different magnitude is always happening.
