On a warm sunny day,
I wake up with the fear of saying
goodbye. When thousands of
thoughts are blurring my vision,
I look in the mirror, and reflect upon the times we had spent together.
I come to the room to take a glance
at your sleeping face, the pair of
those eyes that resonate with
my kind of world, the lips that sing
hymn of love for me, the spaces between your fingers that
perfectly fits mine.
I am going to say goodbye to all
of these. It isn’t going to be easy
at all, I hope you know it’s heartbreaking and hard,
harder than I thought.
I open the wardrobe, and in a
fraction of seconds I know which
dress I must pick. I put on the red
lacy satin dress which you had
gifted me on our first date.
I want to live those moments
again, for one last time before
I bid adieu to not only you,
but the furry blanket which hugs
us with its open arms,
the closet that carries the scent
of our love, the pillow that has witnessed us dreaming to spend a
lifetime together, and to every corner
of the house that knows about us.
You cook me breakfast, pouring
your love with the ingredients.
You look me straight in the eye to
discover how afraid and restless I'm.
Our eyes meet and do all the talking
while my soul is craving for you.
You know well that I’m breaking from
inside, and my world is falling apart.
You pull me closer, hold me by my
waist, and we kiss. While the crevices
of our lips explore the profoundness
of our love, I break into tears.
Darling, your lips taste sweeter than
the sugar, but wouldn’t it be our last
kiss before I depart from the city that
feels like home because of you.
I sob and sob, you calm me down
like a mother calms her baby
in her bosom.
You come to see me off at the
airport, the place I didn’t want to go to
by choice, but destiny had some
You look at me, I look at you,
and we hug for one last time.
I wish the moment freezes here
and the hug never breaks.
It isn’t just a hug, but my happy place, my go-to place where I can
dusrobe even my ugliest of
My eyes are filled to the brim
with love, hope, and the dreams
we weaved together underneath the
I wish to have enough courage to
embrace this pain of separation
with a warming heart.
Our hands lose contact as I keep moving.
I badly want to look back,
but I know if it happens,
I will shatter to the core by looking
at your cute puppy face and the
labyrinth of memories we had
Know that I love you,
wait for me until we meet again.
