In the cold of night as I shivered all alone
often had I wondered
where were You now?
and how will I recognize You
It has been so long
since I saw You last
felt your comforting breath
or tasted Your lips divine.
My sinking heart missed a beat or two
as the thought plagued me
that You might have come and gone
and not waited long enough for me.
Racing against time, as I climbed the hill of life
I saw a mirage or two
distractions to be resisted
as wearily I looked around for You.
Losing sight of the purpose
of my being here again
searching for that familiar feeling
that I remember from eons long gone
Unsure of my own self
as I grappled with destiny
faintly at the back of my mind, were
haunting tunes that You sang for me.
Flashes of fleeting images
of a touch that was not there
and tiny whiffs of the perfume
that We lovingly shared in past
Muslin dreams of spirituality surrounded me
until You wavered; then moved away
taking with You my desires
and also a part of me, that was all of me.
My quest of ages was finally over, when
You pledged Your rekindled love for me
giving me back that once was Ours
and even left within me a part of You.
We still must go that last hard mile
and wait for the time when finally
We rejoin in love, Our bodies and Soul
now We see the peak and must know
where to go Together
