As I walked past the roads
I could not see anything else other than you
I closed my eyes when I thought I realized
how much I missed you
everything on my way was just a reflection of you
As I closed my eyes,
even in the darkness of my eyelids
I could see your smiling face
It was as if you were imprinted on me
everything crystal clear
like a mirror image
I felt I was near you
and extended my hand to touch
yet as I spread out my hands.
I couldn’t touch you
you disappeared like ripples in the water
yet again, you appeared with a smile
inducing a smile on my face
I felt you were moving along with me
like a shadow …that never leaves me
I could feel your presence yet not touch you
I could feel your warmth, yet not be in your arms
I knew you were virtually with me always
as if you were with me holding the umbrella
and we walked together soaked in the ravishing rain
the strong feel of love was indeed the pulse for me.
It was the beautiful season of the year – Autumn.
The time when the trees shed their leaves and stand up straight ready to welcome the white snowy coats to cover them. The amazingly beautiful park was covered with orange, red, yellow color leaves – she walked and picked them to feel the beauty. Everything around her was alluring. She didn’t know where to look and where to click. She wished she could gather all this beauty in her heart and cherish it forever.
It was indeed difficult.
The combination of multi-colored trees and the green grass almost swept her mind off. She walked and walked along the path, cherishing the moments she has soaking with this beauty. The weather was cold and she was trying to warm her up in her jackets. The wind was tickling her soft fingers, giving little cold as it goes by. She kept her hands inside her pockets and walked past the park, then to bridge that connects to her home.
As she reached one-fourth of the bridge, she couldn’t take her eyes off the beauty around. She stood there, watching the ripples in the water and the spectacular beauty around her. The soft breeze was pampering her as if she was a feather floating along the wind.
She stood there lost in her thoughts for a while.
Time swept by, she never knew. In the end, she could see it was the sun setting and warning her it is getting darker soon. In the bright redness of the setting sun, the autumn flowers were impeccable. The mixture of redness was soaking in the atmosphere. She watched the sun set down for his good night sleep while walking up to her home.
As soon as she reached it was dark and everything was same everywhere, overshadowed by the night sky, big black blankets covering up the whole world.
She finished her chores and climbed up to her cozy bed to feel snuggled in the cold night.She craved for warmth and love. She wrapped her up in the blankets and with the beautiful dream in her eyes slept to the melody played by the breeze in her ears. She slept peacefully to open up her eye to another beautiful day in her life.
