Love blessed me




You said good bye.

You said not to expect anything from you.
But all I heard was “Good bye".

And it all blurred.
You were talking,
Yet I didn’t hear anything.
You were next to me,
Yet I didn’t see you.
You were near,
Yet I felt so far away.
Like standing in a lift with stranger.

"Hey, are you ok?" you said that loud.

I woke up and Shook my head,
Suddenly I realised,
Realised how noisy it is,
Realised we were standing on the road,
Realised the world did not stop,
Realised 12 years of 'us' just died.
I may never know the reason,
It ended like a season.

I never thought it would happen,
Yet alone so peacefully,
Just like passing away in sleep.
No kiss
No hug
No "All the best for your future"

Just the silence.
No words to say.
No pain.
Nothing.

I took a cab home,
The dashboard had a sign,
"God is love"
I doubted whether they both existed.

It’s been a week,
I am still alive,
Since there is no more you and me,
I get to be free.

I went to work.
I cleaned my room.
I washed my clothes.
I watched TV.
I got along with just me,
I did my routine like a tree.
Today
On my way to work,
I saw a baby.
She was covered in soft cloth,
And seated safe in the trolley.
She had big eyes,
Through she looked at everything .
To her world is wonderful ,
Even a leaf flying around made her cheerful.

I saw a busy worker by the fence.
He was drenched in sweat.
His skin was tan.
It shined in sun.
He kept working as if he is having fun.
The sun, the crowed, and the dust he felt no disturbance.

Then I saw a very old man,
He sat on the steps of the train station.
He seemed to be there everyday.
Few ignored him,
Few passed him with sympathy,
Few purchased the tissues he was holding.

He saw me looking at him.
He held up few tissue packets.
I took it and gave him a dollar.

"Have a good day sir", he wished.
Just what I needed, I thought.

Few steps away I saw a old lady.
She was lost in her own thoughts.
She didn’t sell anything.
Yet she was there, patiently waiting.

I walked away and waited for the train
Only few minutes passed but it felt much longer
Time seems to have taken slow ride
May be it knows who are lonely and stays with them longer
Perhaps I can say "Time is on my side”

Now I saw the Old man eating,
Next to him was the old lady, feeding .

They seemed to be happy.
It doesn’t matter where life took them.
The poverty, the old age didn’t win them.
For Love protected,
Nourished,
And kept them happy.

Love does exists,
It’s live in front of my eyes.
It's the reason.
It's the hope.
And it’s enough for me.
It made me happy.

Love exists,
So God might also exists,
For he stays in heart where there is love.

My train did arrive.
I got in and sat.
"ahcuuu" I sneezed while picking up the tissue,
"God bless you" said the stranger next to me.

If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, its yours forever. If it dosent, then it was never meant to be.
