Near Yet So Far


How many times I weave few words of love,
But refrain from showing you.
And those occasions when I harness some thoughts,
But abolish to express.
I often smile gazing the moon,
When I see your reflection in its shadow from time to time.
And the pitter-patter of raindrops on that windowsill,
How it reminds me of our endless talk.

The summer nights,
The starlit skies,
The evening hues,
The wilderness sights,

Every natureโ€™s caper brings back the vivid memories,
The days of our bonding,
The trail of those beautifultimes.

I try reaching out to you,
And though you are near,
Yet far away from my yearning heart

  1. The word I have for it is ‘WOW’. Something which I thought is incomprehensible, has been so beautifully articulated. This gave an identity to the feeling which is visible to none except the person having it. I am simply awed by it.
