Caught in your smile..
Going breathless for a while.
As you look back at me..
I could see.
Patio chairs sit empty now..
As laughter echoes through summer.
Shouting out loud right into my ear..
Then coming down on my lap..
Those widespread eyelids twinkle..
Not falling for the trap..
Is me.
The steaming coffee smokes..
Flickering lips with a sip.
Foggy glasses..
While rain splashes the windows all afternoon..
Trying to watch through closed eyes..
Feeling the voice of the door..
Or the creaky floor..
Heart trembles as night falls..
Sleepless gets me.
Not happening..
Not anymore..
Where they are ,where they go..
Only heart pounds in despair..
Wishing they know.
Rushing back to my arms..
Are crying droplets..
Snarling back..
Is a faded reflection..
Trying to look through..
Is me.
Walking on dry leaves..
Listen as silence swings..
Noisy heart beats..
Clumsy crossing streets..
Caught a butterfly..
As it passes by..
Giving out a smile..
That’s in me.

* Dedicated to parents and their selflessness.It’s a courageous pact indeed.
