Whisper My Name Just Once…

#Poattic-5    #Rewind

A day, I thought

perhaps would suffice

I’d rewind the hands of

Quietly fleeting time.

But can a day ever suffice

The love exchanged in a lifetime?

***

Alas! Too soon have you left

With a searing pain my heart is cleft.

One half goes with you

As I bid my last adieu.

With the other numbed half

What shall I ever do?

***

No whispers leave

Your silent lips.

Instead I imagine words,

Your voice trailing me

“Soft, tarry wait awhile.”

Words once uttered  tenderly.

***
Now, instead of my arms

A white shroud hugs

Swathing together both of us.

White colours my void existence

Fill this void, by whispering

My name just once.

***

Or promise me a rendezvous

Visit me in the darkest nights

When my doomed soul strives

Touch me till I burst into a million stars.

Then, like gusts of winds let your arms

Cradle me into serene somnolence.
