There were numerous times when she was blue,
But like a dedicated lover,
he was always there.
Right by her side,
Smiling with a complacent stare.
He had longed her embrace since time immemorial.
And one day,
Through utter determination,
He created ‘tomorrow’
And sought his help,
Just to get a glimpse of her
everyday, without any sorrow!
But for all that matters,
The plan backfired.
And much to his misery,
She too fell for the latter.
The agony it caused was too deep.
And to dilute his pain,
He took a vow,
that he would remember everything only for a single day,
Till the moon called it a day.
‘Nothing can be done now,
for the pledge was irrevocable!’
Said the sages by the bay.
Meanwhile, she too was hurting,
For ‘Tomorrow’ had deserted her,
Saying it was not he, she should look for!
She was sad but bore the refusal with superficial strength,
For her heart too had been broken.
But learning of the torment,
She had put her true lover through,
She cried inconsolably,
And took a vow,
That she too would suffer for ages,
Running after ‘tomorrow’,
Ending up with the same fate,
And that she would always feel a vacuum,
Which she wouldn’t be able to comprehend ,
Till she realized that it was
‘Today’ her heart had always yearned!
And This story untold,
Of ‘The One’
For her, needs to unfold!
For the time is ripe,
And who knows what fate will hold!
