Finding SPACE

Finding SPACE

On that night of the winter,

I chose to sleep beneath the open sky

In the middle of the town,

Watched the twinkling stars spreading your joy,

Felt the warmth of the moon,

As if you had kept your head on my shoulder through the night.


Just the other day I told you

I will give my life for a fistful of your smile,

I will topple the genetics of the mortal,

To sing you the song till eternity,

Not a single melancholic moment I will allow in your vicinity.


Not sure why I reduced to so human,

When you came to my world

Leaving behind almost everything, entrusting me,

I could not reciprocate the same, after a few springs,

Sand was slipping out of my hand

And I was trying to keep it tight within.


Alas, I was not so irrational and

Understood the basics,

Before swirling you around to fit into a world

Where I was already spinning at a fast pace

And heard the moan that you had

To make me the superhuman that I had promised.


God smiles and reminds us that we are beautiful,

That night the boy in me was back to school

With the same vigor to know,

The ever so intriguing lessons - lessons of life.


It is so pure, it had me zooming into realities,

A mind free of dogmas and a whole lot of untruths,

It is like the tenderness of my mother’s hand on me.


The human in me had got its best treasured possession,

It is the detachment that makes the life,

It is giving space to each other and helping,

To unlock the potential to reach the heights.
