I will forget him…

a poem by Aparna Kadari

I will forget him…
In my thoughts within
And mines of my soul
Embedded are his memories
Echoing are his words

I will forget him…
Life is dim without his light
My prayers are weak
Heart pounds for his glimpse
Loneliness needs comfort

I will forget him…
His presence is solace
Eyes give me warmth
Smile gives me hope
Touch gives me the warmth

I will forget him…
When inspiration ceases to flow
Hope is never a blessing
Ambitions go down
And success is meaningless

I will forget him…
When winds lash my face
Waves touch my feet
Rain wets me to my bone
Sun renders its rays

I will forget him…
Despite the hay days
Time we spent holding
Conversations galore
And promises ahead of time

I will forget him…
When my time halts
I breathe no more
My eyes pat dry
On my last tomorrow!
