Time Had His Reasons

Time had his reasons

My thoughts linger with the remnants of a lost love
Gone with the wind.

With precision profound and passion unflinching,
A beautiful allegory showcasing the truth of love,
Reigned in my heart for years many.

‘Loving is always cathartic,’
He whispered with feelings exuberant
In my ears soft and attentive.
The message spread around,
Hale and hearty, light and bright,
Like caleidoscopic rangoli
In all the cells of my body,
Making me shine with
The seven colors of love.

I was in the prime of my youth,
Always talking gleefully, gently and peacefully.
I touched his silvery grey hair
Which was like fur of a velvety cap.
Leaning on his shoulder, I replied,
‘Love knows neither decay nor decline.’

We looked at the crystal moon,
Our fingers entwined,
Admiring the sights and sounds
Offered by the waves.
We slept together on the sands soft.
In the morning, while the first rays of the sun
Warmed our hearts laden with love
And bodies drowned with passion pure,
We said ‘Adieu’ and parted.
Love had her reasons to bring us together
And time had his reasons to separate us for ever.
