It is today that i rediscovered my old compilation of poems ( if all u generous people would give me huge allowances and consider these as poetry that is...) in an old and tattering book that i'd saved in a deep remote corner long forgotten. Was also frightened to see the pages withering and the ink fading....much like the memories that so invaluably were attached to them. It was then that i wanted to imprint them beyond the confines of my ageing "Mind", across some "Space" on the web, that could stand the ravages of "Time". Thus was born this blog.......and thus shall it continue.
This one i gather, i had written way back in the March of 1994. The naiive and the romantic surface....
I remember the times
We sat by the river….
We ran thru’ the waters….
We brushed off our sorrows….
We rushed thru’ the corn fields….
Lit golden by the dying Sun….
Sinking down the horizon.
But now its all over
You say that you are leaving
Oh! It hurts me so!
For, you were the one n only….
Who understood me, took me for what I am
But now u’ve to go
Just as we were growing….
Growing to be more than good friends
Now you say goodbye
And so will it be if it has to be.
For in your pleasure lies my deliverance.
If you see me in tears, I’ve every reason dear.
For with you, you are taking a part of me.
An invaluable piece of my heart that I thought belonged to me
And if you ever decide to come back
Remember I’ll always be here….Just for you…
I’ll remember the times
Playing in the back of my mind
All the love u gave me
Only then it will all be gone
Runaway by time, overshadowed by destiny
Like the sandcastle of our love
Giving in to the unruly waves of fate
As Time was envious of the true love we cherished…..
Lady, our love was never meant to stay.
