Puzzle:
=====================
(Then) :
How can I assert you –
My loving sweet heart
That how much you’re closer to me
And how much do I love thee,
I was telling the same – number of times
I could not live or dream devoid of you.
You stopped me smilingly –with a kiss
That I don’t need this to tell you again

(Now) :
Leaving this earth, you proved me wrong
That without you even, I can live alone.
Oh’ my dear - Oh’ my love -
Now, though I agree that I was wrong
But now I’m dying every moment

Alone alone just I am alone
In this crowded earth without you
I am alone.

    Being separated from the one you love is life's harshest lesson, it takes you from the one you love,
    yet increases your love in their absence, making you feel more intensely the pain of losing them.
    It is a vicious cycle, time moves us away slowly, yet the pain never dissipates and when remembered
    knocks us into an ocean of despair for a while. Death for those who are left behind is the cruelest
    side effect of true love, I think. Thank you again, Amitava for another beautiful poem, you leave a
    little of yourself with us in every poem. It is treasured in our hearts. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Nicely written with love and admiration.The beauty of love
    does not go away. It merely fades with time. I have a poem
    titled If We Ever Meet Again. Please read when you have time.
    Nice write. (Report) Reply

    the puzzle of separation indeed is harsh......................like life and death, love and separation seem to be two sides of a single........ (Report) Reply

    Because when love sealed the kiss to silent, it already read what you want to tell inside
    and
    Pain is a waiting moment, to mix all colorful happiness to be one light again...
    being far from all of them not mean we out of touch but it just amplify loudness what in heart more_Soul (Report) Reply

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
