Why not now?


Whenever so earnestly
I am longing for your glare
I look for you all around
But you're nowhere there

This is when I need you most
When we are yet to pair
You'll love and adore then
And is this how you now care

We'd be sitting all the time
Looking into each other's eyes
How is it that the pain in them
You so fail to realize

I know I'll cross this sea
As I've done thus far
And you'll come up my horizon
Like a shining star

When forgetting all this world
On each other we'll gush
Mere thought of that moment
Makes my heart blush

But once we get there
Please do make sure
That we'll never ever be apart
No, not any more.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Sometimes when I am feeling alone, a thought comes to my mind that the person with whom I am going to spend my entire life is out there somewhere, perhaps feeling the same way. Why is it that we can't spend a minuscule part of that time together now - listen to each other, and reassure each other that one is waiting for the other.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
