So Close But So Far Away
When you were close to me,
by Jay P Narain
We walked and breathed as a single soul,
Mutual love and affection was in our hearts,
Your smile and your presence made my days.
No poems or love lyrics came to my mind,
I never dreamt of building a love monument or a shrine,
Whenever I presented you with fresh garden rose,
The happiness and smile on your face stole my heart.
When you used to be away to your family and friends,
I would count days and nights for your return,
A few minutes of phone conversations used to make my day,
And finally when you came, our hearts and bodies used to reunite in one.
Now when you are gone so far away,
I envision you every minute with my poems and thoughts,
The monument I have built in my heart,
Is prettier than the marble domed wonder of the world.
You are so far away, but you feel so close to me,
I can smell the fragrance of your beautiful smile.
Sadly I miss your presence every day,
But it is a nice feeling to be so close even you are so far away.
