Promise

I will be easy company; the blur
Of what I longed for once will fade to space.
No thought that could discomfort you will stir.
My eyes will painlessly survey your face.

    self effacing, and non-intrusive, a state of witness, great thinking, Vikram.

    I relate to this poem...it significance is very personal. It has successfully articulated the way i felt in a particular situation in the past. Thank you Vikram.
