Poem: Meeting After a Long Hiatus

Long, lingering nights stand witness

For the yearning eyes, gazing at the stars;

She rests immersed in an unruffled ocean,

Cushioned like a pearl in its shell.


The time has come to a standstill,

There is quietude everywhere;

She pines for him day and night,

Not even for a moment his face disappears.


Her head turns up, her arms raised,

She whispers his name, as her Heart

Embraces the emotion, and realization

Knocks on the door that he’s being missed.


An uncanny sound is heard through the sky,

Echoing her name in a melodious breeze…

She runs hither and thither,

Breathless, she bends her knees.


Tears flow from her eyes as if she is

Abducted in a valley of white crust;

She is confined with a chain – a chain of pain…

Some call just drops of water,

While her lover sees pearls.


She hears footsteps –

Supersonic this time,

And like a whiff of fresh air

He lends fragrance to her breath.


He gently takes her face in his palms, and says,

“Shh… the darkness has eroded and a new morning begins”

“Why did you disappear?” she shouts lovingly,

He wipes her tears and her Heart finds a haven of calm,

Lo! The two Souls embrace endearingly

In the meadows of lily and palm.

Haitus's fare,

In triggering vigour,

Backin, love affair.

Love is in the air.

Excellent poetry,

Enjoyed it throughly.

Maza aa gaya. Surabhi. :-)

Nice poetry showcasing the long waiting and joyful reunion. You depicted the scene so perfectly.

The song is beautiful. He is a great singer. The original song was sung by another greatest singer Hemant Kumar for Dev Anand.

Romance at its best not settling for less, if you don't hear it you certainly can feel it. That's why I loved it! Thank you especially, sweet deary Surabhi!

Frank, hello there! I appreciate your visit here. Thank you :)

Jodah, I was inspired by reading your poem, "Lulu and the Archangel" and so I thought to write my own version. Quite a different one, but I am glad you like it. Lots of Love.

Glad to hear you were inspired by my poem Surabhi. I can see feel a similar vibe but it is your own unique style and love story.

You have brought out the pangs of separation and the ecstasy of reunion so beautifully in this poem. The song by Jagjit singh is timeless in its beauty and elegance and flows ever so liltingly. The original in Lata's and Hemant Kumar's voice are a connoisseur's delight.
