A Perpetual Wait

Congregation of  stars

Had  adorned  the  sky

I  kept  calling  you  love

But  there  was  no  reply

Scattering   its  shine

The  moon  smiled  wide,

Only  for  you I’d  asked

Heaven  be  beautified

The  moments,  one  by  one

Are  slipping  away  from  me

Who  knows  if  we’ll  get  again

Such  night  cool  and  balmy

Having  waited  so  long,

Stars  are  falling  asleep

The  darkness  with  dew  drops

Has  started  to  weep

My  eyes, too, are  moist

Just  looking  at  the  way

On  which  caravans  of  hope

Are  now  moving  away

I  think  its  curtain  down

It’s  not  going  to  rise,

The  shards  of  broken  dreams

Are  irritating  my  eyes

Let  me  go inside  now

Shut  windows  and  the  door

No  one  is   going  to come,

No  expectation  any  more

    Time will announce its arrival, and will come too soon!
    A long wait followed by the anticipated outcome has its own charm and beauty!
    And nothing odd to wait and see!
