Once We Were Together... - Poem by veeraiyah subbulakshmi

When I had walked by you,
I saw you as the pretty buds,
I had no time to touch,
When I had passed by you,
I observed you smile at me,
As the beautiful flowers,
The perfume from you,
Reached my nose, felt great,
I had no time to hold you,
For a while to appreciate,
For what you had gone through,
Suddenly I have the revelation,
Someone has sent me during dream,
I am startled and I do feel weak,
Walk to your wonderful garden,
I see you gone, empty beds,
Empty closets, all are removed,
I pick up something from the floor,
There is a petal, but wrinkled,
Which I had never noticed,
Pursuit for the skirts, shirts and wealth,
Have ruined the hearts with immense wrath,
I take that petal to my house,
To frame and keep as the remembrance,
Once we were together as the father and the son,
Once we were together as the mother and the daughter,
Once we were together as the parents and the kids,
Once we were together as the wife and the husband,
Once we were together and once we were together.
