Special Guest - Poem by Suraj Samtani

Ssshh...

Someone is here,

Lets see whose to appear.


Is it her?

Is it sir?


O this suspense

makes me so tense!


Sudden silent surprises

suggests something seems so strange.




Alas, the door's hit with a 'Knock! ',

While the clock slowly goes 'tock'


A peep through the window,

Shows me just a shadow.


'Hey Honey' comes the voice from outside.

I think: should I still keep him in the hide?


It sounds, though, unfamiliar,

But my hearing hasn't become any easier.


With the bewilderment of a child opening his present,

I open my door to see who, at my house, is actually present.




The sun's rays
was first to catch my gaze.

Then there stood the man,
Whose memories used up my whole life span.




Honey?
Whom did he just refer to as 'Honey'?

Honey.
In all these years he made someone else his 'Honey'?

Honey!
All I know is that he, forever, is now my honey!




Did he know I was the new tenant here?
Or was he just in search for another, whom he also once called 'dear'...?
