Title ; No Goodbye

I promise that I would try to live without you , from today

It took me sometime to come to terms with your sudden departure

Please , I do promise

I know , you may not come very soon

And I promise that I would not cry again

I do listen to you darling ,

And I understand why this has happened to us

When my heart will fall into abyss next time

I will not have your shoulder to cry

Though I try to meditate each day , but what I hear is only your voice

Narrating our story of the time gone by

Nevertheless ,I already know about it

Perhaps , we will never make our future together

Perhaps ,that’s why I only hear the echoes from our past

And I promise to sleep alone without you

For I know you also sleep alone

I will eat our favorite food alone every day

And I know you will recall me, when you would do the same

Today I read your Valentine’s day poem for me

And I looked at that meditating portrait you painted of me ,years back

When the life will hit me hard again

I will find peace in looking at our old photographs

It will again work for me ,as it has always worked

I would never say goodbye , darling !

Because in my life there is only welcome to you .
