It’s time to say goodbye

Yesterday I saw a movie “Anjaana Anjaani” Starring Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. (I love the song 'Tujhe Bhula Diya') After watching that movie I realized that how complicated a relationship can be. How difficult it is to know a person. How peculiar feelings can be.

It’s strange that sometimes, people can’t understand people in even long time relationships and sometimes it’s inexplicably easy to connect with someone profoundly. But unfortunately, sometimes despite all the ‘made-for-each-other’ type vibes, they are not destined to be together.

It’s time to say goodbye
It’s all over
They met in life
Just as a stranger

Their eyes met
And it connected someway
Lips showed a hint of smile
And they became friends from that day

A strong connection
That never felt before
Started to bond gradually
And emotions peeped from the core

They shared their sorrows
They both were in pain
Pain turned bliss with their amity
And they were able to laugh again.

They shared their happiness
Memories of early good times
When they enjoyed their life
Mirth resonated like chimes

They talked about their obsessions
And their hatred
How agony assailed them
And they felt like cheated

Life for them was like shipwreck
Gradually it became like a cozy nest
Their camaraderie taught them the gist of life
And they decided to give it their best

Their destination arrived, they didn’t realize
Their heart heaved a sigh
Their togetherness was about to end
And it was time to say goodbye!

(Though in the movie they met forever but I preferred to end this on a final goodbye.)

  4. the pshychological side of obsessions are interesting...!

  5. I read this on Carry on Tuesday. Good-byes are so hard, but sometimes they happen....even when one had a strong connection. Sad though.

  6. A sad tale on love but sometimes it ends that way. Still, a lovely poem.

  7. Well, that was neat and sad but true!
    I have always liked that song from Anjana Anjani...
    Nice Heartfelt Magpie!

  8. it's that moment in time that races on and yet crawls... is it better to not have at all or have even just a whole bunch in a little bit of time....
