In Solitude

In Solitude                                                                         

Light as a feather it sits,

On the centre of my palm:

Never to be shred into bits,

It’s on to make you calm;

Miles stretch between us

Making so much of a fuss,

That the wind beckons me –

I’ll take it for thee.

Gently, I place the note

Like pinning a rose on a coat;

The wind gives me a salute,

Being an emissary of high repute.

I, too, fly with the breeze,

Feeling perfectly at ease,

As I make my way

Through clouds that are gray.


I’m tired of the long wait,

For my heart carries a heavy weight;

I can hear your soft whisper,

Which is growing crisper;

I can smell your rich perfume,

It’s making my senses fume;

I can see your eyes shine

Looking at me, they are fine;

I can feel you within,

And all my thoughts, you win;

You presence here, I lonh

So that I could sing a song:

Make your way shorter, come back faster,

I’ve been waiting for a while

Longing to see your smile.

I miss you dear: I hope you hear.
