Of Love And Lullabies

Of Love And Lullabies

It was a rainy afternoon

Everything was gloomy yet green.

We were standing in a balcony,

Not talking to each other;

Silence seemed more rejuvenating

Than that breezy atmosphere.


Somebody had to break the ice;

Hence you asked if I'd be okay

If you fade away from my life!

I smiled. Not at you. Not at myself.

I smiled at that yellow flower

Which gets ignored by the sun everyday.


Would she be okay, if the sun

fades away from her world?

No, neither I’m that flower

Nor you are the sun.

And since its not the case, yes,

I’d be okay If you disappear.


For love comes without conditions,

It won't matter if you stay.

It won't matter if you go away.

But what matters the most is

What I'm left with once you're gone.

Maybe a broken heart? Too cliché?


Would I sink in an ocean of tears?

Too mainstream? isn't it?

Instead, how about I smile,

At that yellow little flower

Which sleeps in peace hoping

For the sun to rise again.


Let me smile at the possibility

Of that unreachable tomorrow.

Let me smile at the hope that I'll sleep

And we'll stand in this balcony In a gloomy afternoon;

Where you'd ask again, if I'd be okay.
