She waited for his arrival
leaving the door to her heart open
eyes on the pathway for his glimpse
ears waiting for his footsteps
the moment he arrived
she hurriedly hugged him
he hugged her tightly kissing her on her neck
she felt the whole world had arrived in her arms
she could be with him for hours
yet time was their enemy …as the time moved
it was time for them to part their ways
as he was leaving, she held his hands tightly
wishing that the moment paused forever
and she could be with him till her death
she wanted to spend every breath of her life in his arms
as he wanted to be in her arms
she knew he wished to cry out.
but when nothing was in their hands,
what else they could do then part their ways for good
his tears rolled down his heart, unknowingly drenching her soul
her fingers held his fingers tightly.
as his legs started to move and walk away from her.
she held his hands …close to hers…
she smiled, yet her eyes were ditching her
her smile was overshadowed by her melancholy
he let go her hands
his eyes promising her that, they would meet again
he slowly moved away from her.
leaving his heart in her hands forever
parting his ways from hers.
hurting their soul.
as the distance was killing them.
he wished to be in her arms …
yet the devils played their part.
keeping them away for a while
to test their love and patience
she could not think
how she would handle this void space
yet she was sure that in the end…he will be waiting for her
with his arms open up for her.
their wait continued…….till the time elapsed.
