Love: My Definition

Atul Chandra Sarkar

Love is holding hand,
As tight as can be,
While crossing the road,
Or feeling lonely,
Love is waiting patiently,
For years together,
Looking for the rainbow,
In bone-dry weather,
Love is forever peeping,
Outside the window,
Waiting home-coming,
To get back the old glow,
Love is lending a ear,
To every distress call,
Love is rushing help,
In slips and fall,
Love is kerchief,
That wipes out tear,
Love is embrace,
That drives out fear,
Love is desire to sit together,
For breakfast, lunch, dinner,
Love is a unique game,
Which has no winner;
Love is not convincing,
The other in words,
Love is calling the other,
In the whistle of birds.
Love is a prism that,
Rainbows in proper light,
Love is holding the skeleton,
Even after life’s flight.
