GoodBye ... ???

GoodBye …


(Just Can't say GoodBye ...)


I saw her for the first time
She looked soothing to the eye
She was not stunning nor very beautiful
But I still couldn’t help but pry

We met, we talked, and we became friends
And We fought, we smiled and we made up
We also always made it a point
To have coffee in the same cup

Time went by and we moved closer
But she always hesitated, never called me her lover
Whenever the dreaded question was asked
She would always run for cover

I had promised to give her a way out
And I always kept my word
Whenever she was lip tied
I gave her the ‘way out’ that she deserved

Then came the day she confessed her love
But she said, we had nothing from it to gain
I didn’t come out of the trance but still
… I fell in love with her again

We fought when she said she didn’t need me
She’d better be left alone
I thought it was one of her jokes
But her eyes had the look, that of stone

Tears ran down as I realized the fact
And I couldn’t fathom, why was I in so much pain
Then I saw tears in her eyes too
…. And I fell in love with her again

She told me of a guy one day
She’d been talking with him for a while
She said ‘He’s not a bad guy’
And I tried hard to keep the same smile

She tried again, to convince me
‘Don’t meet or talk’, she said ‘Please refrain’
But her eyes pleaded, ‘Don’t go’
…. And I fell in love with her again

She kept trying to keep me away
But she kept falling for me again
And whenever she said, ‘I need you’
…. I fell in love with her again

She tried being aggressive too
‘I’m very indifferent’, she said
But I could always notice it
While saying that her eyes, with tears, were red

She could not hide her love for me
Always remembering me when it would rain
I would also drench myself sometimes
To hide the tears and relieve the pain

I would tell her I always missed you
In the wind and in the drops of rain
And then, the day, she said, ‘I missed you too’
…I fell in love with her again

She told me she was doing it for me
She didn’t want to give me any pain
I understood then that Love isn’t just all smiles
…. And I fell in love with her again

I told her I’m doing it for her too
And then, that night again, it rained
Little pearls ran down her cheek
…. And I fell in love with her again

We realized that we’re in love
The first time, and now, once again
I held her in my arms, she held me tight
… And I fell in love with her again

We realized that love isn’t about receiving
Its’ about giving everything, time and again
I’m happy we’re still together, and with that
…. I fell in love with her again

Who said you fall in love just once
I feel there’s still a lot more to gain
I’m in love with her, but still, everyday
…I’m falling in love with her all over again.

Lucky and Fortunate are those who fall in Love and live with their love...But Love is something which comes with a package LOVE and PAIN...And that also becomes easy to live with,when the true Love remains the same,where distance also doesnt matters...nothing matters..juss an unconditional Love...

During the day
I go with others and i run and play
But in my heart you shall always stay
During the night
I look to the sky and wondering if ya thinking of me

mayur said...

love seems to be an infinite loop with no exit condition :P....oops..sorry..but a software engineer's interpretation ..who has never been in love ;)

Ok, on a serious note...the poem is very very well written....i liked the articulation and the way the ups and downs of a relationship are captured(although i couldn't relate to any of it ;))

and more over...this being a poem i love it even more :)...writing poems is a tough job!

you have a fan here...i will go through your other poems soon :)

All the best for BAT!!!

Vipul Grover said...

Well, it seems u r back to Blog-a-Ton after a long hiatus.. so welcome back :)

Before I comment about the post, a request- please change the title to just 'Goodbye' asap .. I know it doesnt gel with the poem, bt thn BAT requires, u 2 write sumthing tht goes with given topic.. mayb if u add a '?' aftr 'Goodbye', it will do justice to the poem..

Anyway, a nice piece of poetry.. really liked the recurring line which held the whole poem together.. emotions have been conveying in a fine lyrical and rhyming manner.. keep participating :)

Sunny said...

@Mayur - Thanks bro ... really like when ppl love my work ... I hope it would be soon that you fall in love n relate to my poem ... :-) ... ATB ...

@Vipul - Wow, its the Marshal himself ... on my blog ... His first comment ... I'm humbled ... Thanks for dropping by ... have done the needful sir ... N Thanks for the kind words ... have a long way to go to actually win a BAT .. but never-the-less ... will keep trying ... ATB to you ...

Amity said...

Who really said we only fall in love just once with the same person? I know "we fall in love over and over again" because that must be true love, so definitely, you don't have to say goodbye...:)

Lovely poem Sonny! Thanks for sharing...suddenly I remember a friend over a cup of tea...:)

All the best to you at BAT!

Worthless Rantings said...

i hear you... i know exactly what you're talking about... good one

Vee... said...

so you are in love head over heals, isn't it? :P
Good poem. Oops, good ain't the word. Wonderful poem it is!!

Keerthi P said...

Now why didn't I think of that? I was under the impression there HAD to be a goodbye in the post. :D
Excellent poem! Every time I read the line "fell in love with her all over again" I had a huge grin.

Very romantic! All the best!

Nethra said...

That was superb and quite different take on the topic. Count my vote. :)

All the best!! :)

Lucky are those who taste the honey sweet love potions, lucky are those who witness the spring time play...lucky are those who can frame the emotion into best of the poetic pieces I have read so far.
