Rendezvous

I wonder if you still remember
That fateful summer's July day
When we bade a final good-bye
Somewhere around the mid-day.

You were indeed looking at your best
With as usual beautiful body and soul
So chirpy, cheerful with gleaming eyes
An Elated spirit ahead a magnificent life.

I remained quiet although a bit unnerved
While trying my best to look composed
Maintaining my outward calm and smile
As if the rendezvous was just a routine.

I did maintain the courtesy to offer you tea
You gracefully agreed and then made it too
Conversation followed just to keep it going
And a friendly promise to keep in touch too.

At the end, while fast losing my composure
I couldn't even join you for a safe departure
While you were slowly walking away from life
Hapless I watched from an archway; transfixed.

Not that you were in a sort of risk or need
Yet how come I remained so uncivilized
You may not even mind or be aware of this
But this will remain forever my regret in life.

Comment In every life, beyond space and time...

Thanks for enabling me access to a beautiful poem on 'union' of love rather than 'loss'.
