After crossing seven oceans

After crossing seven oceans
and thousands of miles
You will touch
the moist morning soil of my city
the rising sun will
get a glimpse of you
my city will soak itself
with your presence
will transform and
never be
the same ever
though I shall
wait till eternity to see you
I will touch the moist city
try to feel  the air
for your fragrance
look for your footprints
and write a poem on them
my words will linger forever
in the soul of my city
only you will
not be there to know
the longing of your twin soul.
