Love is still breathing
My dear, converse with me
If the morning sun is still kissing you
If breeze of affection still whispering with you
Of my form
In your imagination
In your beside
In your inside
In my absence
Despite the fight we did,
Then, why waste longer time not conversing to one another?
Then, why pretend to be an ice and stone, in vain?
If our state of mind is echoing to self:
What is life any longer?
What is existence for?
Louder and louder,
Stronger and stronger,
In aloofness, in absence of one another,
Remember, the love is still breathing there.
There is nothing wrong loving again and again.
My dear, our fight,
Let’s leave it behind
Bygone is bygone,
It was like lighting in the sky
Do you ever notice? How long the lightning lasts?
Simply, a femtosecond
Simply, a second, if longer
However, after raining
Sky turns out to be clear
Similarly, our fight; if we feel the very death of it
And now hearts are beating like a drum to meet
And, secretly, thinking of melting nights
Let’s lose ourselves in love
Let’s surrender ourselves in love
There is nothing wrong
To surrender again and again
Like winter always surrenders with spring.
