Wish you were here..


Today while travelling back to home
That song suddenly played
The one you would sing to me all the time
While engulfed in your arms I laid
I blinked my eye to not let tears make their way
My cheeks then felt a sudden wave of air
Reminding me of the way you would caress my face
How I wished, you were here..

Every time I visit those places and see
People holding hands and making merry
I sit back and time pushes me
To the times when our laughs echoed the streets
To the times we celebrated my smallest victory
To the times when we ate in the same dish
To the times, I thought it will always persist

As I walked down the road
And it ended at my place
How I wished it was yours and not mine
When I reached back and undressed
While my hands moved around
How I wished they were yours and not mine
While I settled to have food
And mom got American Chop suey
I settled back and moved rear
To hold back a tear that struggled to find its way
How I wished, you were here..

I reached out to the bed
With the phone in hand I fiddled badly
Typed your number to call but didn't make
Wondering, I was supposed to act angry
I typed a text, congratulated and kept it away

I peered from the corner of my eye
To see if a text from your side appears
But there came no reply
And I broke down clutching the pillow tight
For it was already too hard to bear
With our pictures bookmarked
I smiled seeing the highest likes
That tear finally made its path clear
And while I struggled to sleep
That tear failed to wash your sight
And I kept wishing, wishing you were here..

Wish you were here..

  4. Hi Priyanka,

    I followed Cяystals 'orders from her Pentagram Blog ;) and i'm glad i did. You write beautiful love poetry filled with deep emotions and this flows perfectly. I'm sensing this came right from the heart.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Best wishes, Paul

    to the moment i had felt victory.

    To the times when our laughs echoed the streets
    To the times we celebrated my smallest victory
    To the times when we ate in the same dish
    To the times, I thought it will always persist

    to the times when we were we.

    marvellous. all of it. a certain sadness to it, that one cant help feel related to.
