When You Are Around - Poem by RAJ VIKRAM

When you are around.

When you are around
I feel at ease and nice
As if I feel unburdened
of the weight of worries
I don't look for unbridled
joy but just a flicker of hope which kindles in me the spirit to live on.

When you are around
I feel as if in a sedate
seashore where waves
come and touch my feet
as though they join
and share my angsts.

When you are around
I feel like being in an ancient
mansion where time stands
still and where I just
lie dormant as if
there is no next moment.

When you are around
I feel I am going all around
to all the places where
I long to go simply
by sitting in cushy oblivion
of an afternoon slumber.

When you are around
I feel like moving up
the ladder of hope
from the marshes of mundane
to dizzy heights of sprightliness.

When you are around
I wonder how transformed l am
How different I am
And I just hope you
are around just as now
Forever and ever.
