Dear... (Oops! I forgot to ask your name)
In my life, now, I’m well and sure,
Not shirking my responsibilities like before.
The reason of this transformation is you,
When you bade me the final adieu.
I can’t forget the day I met you first,
My mood was at its worst.
Sick of restrictions implied by my parents.Now I understand that those restrictions…
… Were their obligation.
My dad lost his job due to recession.
Got an ordinary one after…
…Flying off at the tangent.
My spree with friends conked out,
I had to lessen my hang outs.
I had no money to squander,
I thought my status is shattered.
That day I collided with you,
I was in mood to argue.
You groped for the stick…
… Which knocked around,
Then actually I realized that…
…you were blind.
“Why don’t you keep someone with you…
…to hold your hands?”
“I don’t like anyone’s pity and support…
…And I love my independence.”
Your eyes beamed with self confidence,
My heart filled with reverence.
Your beautiful eyes were…
… filled with dreams,.
How could such eyes lack vision?
That was a tyranny of fate I deemed.
I tagged along with you,
I liked you and I really do.
You told me that you taught music,
Your melodious voice…
…completely justified it.
I startled to see how easily…
… you tracked your path,
That seemed an incredible art.
Our small time togetherness…
… came to an end.
You said you’re home and…
…I felt like losing a friend.
My heart skipped a beat…
…as I saw you enter an orphanage,
I felt so agonized and…
…My mind was in complete haze.
I felt ashamed of my demeanor,
As I found you a great fighter.
In spite of all your struggles,
You were independent and full of life
And I was aimlessly wasting my time.
Not understanding my duties…
…and indulged in the boisterous parties.
Suddenly, I felt rejuvenated,
You really inspired me and…
… made me grounded.
I never met you again,
But always remembered you…
…every now and then.
You came like an angel and…
…gone astray like dew,
But you are a paragon and…
…I really want to thank you.
