You Came To Me...

 

 

In one chapter of life
From the archives of unrealised dreams
You came to me as a mellow winter sun
bathed in a gentle smile

My pen scribbled on papers
Pages of messy thoughts
You came to me as a realisation
in the unscrambled words

Living the love beyond sublime
The world stood still for me
You seemed to me as an eternal spring
And love reached its peak

Time lost its precedence
We were in each other's dimly lit late night's feel
You came to me as a courage
To ride the wave of virgin emotions

Heart connection proved stronger enough
to overwhelm the petty coincidences
You came to me as a summer sun
Blazing me up with awareness

Now stuck in the confusion
trying to find something to hold onto
You came to me as a faint light
that gets smaller and dimmer in the touch of time

Life shrugged and muttered 'that's life' 
The words tore my soul
You came to me as the pouring rain
drowned me in the depth of your distance

I hear the receding footsteps
In the stillness of my crushed heart,
You came to me as a sinking shallow feeling
As I struggle to deeply exhale

I dwell in every memory
blank eyes desperately reaching out to hold on
You came to me as an autumnal breeze
To blow me away along with the leaves

I wait...
I know in a winter sun
bathed in a gentle smile
You will come to me as a goodbye
I will then turn the page to begin the next chapter of my life.
