If I smile n ask you to do the same,
Will you be able to live my dream?
Can you go across the Burning Ghats n never look back;
I wouldn’t want you to see me broken and burnt.
I might hide my tears, but the smile won’t be there once again.
I had given it to you, for you, a life regained!
If I keep your memories with me n, ask you to fly away,
Will you come back and hug me like my solitude does?
I might hide my tears again, but I still sleep with you in my eyes.
There may not be a full moon again, Coz, it’s been burning all night!
I wouldn’t want you to come to my dreams again,
Sleep doesn’t come in eternal sunshine!
If I someday bade you a late goodbye,
Would be still remember, the boy who loved you so…?
Can you let go off my hand, and cross the endless bridge?
I wouldn’t want you see the pain that singes my heart, inside-out.
I might hide, what I feel, I know if you have known ‘dreams’…
You would find a heaven on the other side, and love too!
Think of those sunshine days, those moonlit nights,
Think of the touch, that you still feel in your solitude journeys.
Am sure, you would never forget to smile again, nor fall short of happiness.
The dreams, which I saw for you, will be your greatest gift,
To love yourself once again,
To see through those moonlit nights,
To unveil the shrouded darkness,
That love is nothing, but a ruby in the dust.
*Sometimes my solitude seems more than you, not a mere shadow, nor a nightmare, but alive, burning, talking, caressing, as if it has loved me forever, but it’s me, who failed to notice!*
