Lovers since Eternity

Preeth Nambiar

When the way stretched from morning still evenings, tired of my struggle to catch those dicey moments escaping from my fingertips, in the twilight evening of serenity when I smiled, there was silence - melancholic silence!

Holding the arms of the beloved listening to the songs of earthly love when slept, when the withering May-flowers woke me up from deepest slumber, amidst the wandering clouds when I searched, there was silence- mesmerising silence!

In front of the oil lamps when my chanting dissolved unto the shining idols; when the fragrance of instant sticks spread within the dull light within the four walls; within the breathlessness-there was silence- divine silence!

The crowd has dispersed and the sounds of cheers has flown with the distant winds; when I am here looking at the way you disappeared onto the path stretching through the emerald fields, there is silence- silence melancholic!

Within these wet eyes there are colours of majestic skies reflecting and I perceive silence of unknown echoing deep within the caves of longing! O beloved, shall I call you by name silence that I would cherish a lifetime?
