Empty corridoor
Empty room
Empty bed
And an empty heart

Never thought just one person would hold such a place
In my little heart!

Never imagined that if one footstep died away,
It would create so many echoes

Never did it cross my mind that just one individual's absence
Would bring forth the void in my life

People meet, stay and then they part....
If they have to leave, why do they take up a special place in our heart?

I had never thought that one's going a way
would make me face an emotion I never faced before

Never would I be compelled to say "I miss you"

But all that changed...and I do miss the sweetest girl
That God had gifted me even before I was born

She is a Goddess of her own kind, with flaws and perfection blended together

I start each time someone mentions her name,
Talks about her,
Or even carelessly speaks of the past

It hurts me to miss her,
For I know she isn't here for a greater cause

But the heart is selfish and rules over the mind
And always wants to get its way
To go where she is, is what it desires

It is an impossible dream
It gets broken each time I think of being near her
And I go back to missing her
The pain is torture
But I am learning to live with it

Dear girl, one day we shall be together again
Till then, I am fated to miss you
In my inward eye, I can see your face

Amused to see such emotion,
To see me missing you so much
And with a laugh reassuring me of being united again

And with a forced laugh,
I ease myself and learn to believe
This separation is not eternal.........

Like all things, our separation also will have an end..........

However, it that day - I am haunted by the sights of an
Empty corridoor
Empty room
Empty bed
And my empty heart.............
