Fallen Leaves

Like the frightening silence after a thunderous storm,
when a drop make a thud and a slight breeze stimulates fear,
the expectation of the unexpected mounts'

Like the pitch darkness after the glorifying light,
the canopy spreading out like a black sheet,
Nothing can be realized, recognized and made out,
like the upsurge under the sea

Like a place after the fury of cyclone,
everything becomes into something
and nothing is as it was and nothing can be,
like a vase of glass smashing on a rock'

When was the last time we met ?
and when was the time we parted ?
It seems to me that you are always with me
and it is felt that I am always alone

Why the feelings always triumph in
conquering my mind and making it their fray
and why I always succumb to them
and accept the pain to be wailed upon later

Who will lead me, guide me and care for me
Who will reach for me when I stumble to fall
Who will hold me when I go down and deep
And who will strengthen me with a promising smile

I have thrown away my hopes
thinking that they were causing me pain and nothing else
I have demolished my dreams
trusting that they were always making me lost around
I have vowed to be strong and became very weak
I have pledged to be brave and shivered with fear

Will you be there to hold me ?
Would you take me into your fold and wake me ?
Could you make me stand and walk ahead,
To be with you, to be me, for ever'
