Staring at the cloudless midnight,
I sit by the moonlit patch on the floor,
Deafening silence surrounds me.
Do you, like me, wonder at times
How many sleepless nights have gone by?
All this while, I have been trying to write something,
Ripping away the pages that my words have failed,
Thoughts lying crumpled all around me,
Hundreds of lines, all saying the same thing.
Several million words have been written about love,
In various tongues and scripts,
Not to mention the several million that will be written, and yet,
Great men have failed to pour their hearts out.
How can I, then, claim to be any better at it?
Remember this, though, whenever you look
At the vast expanse of blue above-
No matter what happens
Always know that I’ll be with you in spirit,
Wherever destiny takes you.
And although you are miles away from me,
Truth is that you and I, we’re under the same sky.
