Stay With Me - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

Stay with me.
Though you hide your urge
And pretend
You don’t want to.
But I know,
Your desires gleam
More fluorescently
Than sea water in the dark night…

Stay with me,
For you are my home
With embroidered curtains of hope,
For I am your world
Draped with atmosphere of dreams…

Stay with me,
To let me hold your hands tight
Till they tremble with age.
As we planned
To grow together in time
To glow together in love…

Stay with me,
So I can keep my promise
Of always lighting the lamp of your heart,
Until death comes
Infront of me…

Not only because you love me
Not only because I love you,
For there is an us
And for our love for us,
Stay with me.
