A prayer without any wish

Posted on July 15, 2012

Two hands together,

Knees down and

I am doing the prayer;

That same old place,

Those same old people,

If something changed then

It’s only that you are nowhere near.

…………….

Nothing much to wish,

Nothing much to complain;

I am here again to just ask the god,

If “you are the one I was praying for”.

………………………

I saw that same lady in front of the temple holding her child in arms,

And begging each devotee for her son’s better future;

I just smiled and said to myself,

This time I do not have that person with me, who can feel the love of a mother.

……………………………….

I walked on those steps,

Where you and I used to sit for hours together;

But I did not stop for a moment there,

As I did not want to enter the temple with eyes full of tears.

……………………………………………………

When someone,

Who knew both of us, asked me about you;

I did not have any other answer,

Except these words, “you are nowhere near”.

………………………………

Just like you, now I am intelligent enough,

to understand and realize it dear;

 We are now walking on two different paths,

Where we will never meet again for sure.
