Waiting for something to happen

SOMETHING I LOOK AT -73
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Long since
waiting for something to happen
someone to come
the pleasure of waiting
he knows who waits
and i have been waiting for you
since the day we met when
mind stopped roaming, breath
and beats halted for a while and
time forever remained standstill

Nothing is as pleasing as waiting
it keeps me enraptured and enthralled
binds me with you and your memory
it brings me face to face
with the heaven of my dreams
and makes each moment of life
so captivating and enduring
hardly i get time to look at me

You moved ahead but
i am where i was long back
in the lap of your memory
having nothing to do with the present
i look back
where lies my life and its beauty
those few encounters and
the moments i had
just enough to see me through
the days and years ahead

Let there be no end to my waiting
i live and breathe in it
and drench me with all your colours
let me wait for you till eternity
wait for something
which was probably not mine
i can not deprive me of those
priceless feelings that keep me going
and lure me to live a life anticipating
something to happen
someone to come and take care of me

    “ in such strength
    Of usurpation, when the light of sense
    Goes out, but with a flash that has revealed
    The invisible world, doth greatness make abode,
    There harbours; whether we be young or old,
    Our destiny, our being’s heart and home,
    Is with infinitude, and only there;
    With hope it is, hope that can never die,
    Effort, and expectation, and desire,
    And something evermore about to be “

    Wordsworth
    The Prelude
