Someday, I’ll look into your eyes
And tell you,
Of how I suffered blows in silence
Merely for your sake!
I believed in that which was projected to me
I believed in the mysticism surrounding it
I believed in it to such an extent
That it became the reason why I breathed!
I suffered the blows, yes,
I hid my tears behind smiles
I learnt to love the agony of it all
I let the prickly thorns swim all over my bloodstream
I pretended that it did not hurt
I pretended that I was the jolliest of them all
Even if the demons of darkness kept sending, to my soul,
The doubts that meaning binding us both
May not seem to have as solid a foundation for you
As it does for me!
Pray, this world is a sorrowful one,
It keeps revolving for no reason
Taking us there where we speculate about
Without any concrete proof!
Amidst all of this madness,
I choose to rest my faith
In the love I hold for you
I want to look into your eyes
And tell you of how I suffered for you
Merely because the universe had whispered to me
That your fate is linked to mine!
Someday, love, we’ll both look back
And be grateful that we survived everything
I am confident of this
As river water is certain to meet with the ocean
As flowers are certain to taste of dew each morning
As poets are certain to be immortalized through their words
As Earth is certain she is revolving for the sake of the power which rules her!
