Return



This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 14; the fourteenth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.



What would you return for?

Roses will still be the red,
rains will always be wet.
move on in life instead,
I don't mind what I get.

What would you return for?

Love will always be in air,
no matter I'm not there.
Birds will sing as they do,
Listen or not, up to you.

What would you return for?

Night will be dark like now,
stars will twinkle somehow.
Moon may seem more bright,
but don't worry, it's alright.

What would you return for?

If I mattered you wouldn't have left,
I wish your heart I wouldn't have theft.
But love doesn't knock the door,
now I realize, never did I before.

What would you return for?

Nothing will change for you dear,
to you, it doesn't matter far or near.
Everything will be as same as before,
Then, what would you return for?

What would you return for?

But one wish I still want to fulfill,
though you're moving in life uphill,
That someday you turn back and see,
I'm not where you wanted me to be.

I've moved on as well, for sure,
Now, what would you return for?

18 After Thoughts:

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

Interesting... and a very practical thought.
Life doesn't wait for us, and if somebody leaves us in between, we should not stay there for ever and move on.

All in all, an interesting poem.

Cheers
Blasphemous Aesthete

Jaspreet said...

A nice read-strong verse makes it even more interesting. But it's sad too-people come and go as and when it suits them, and feel too surprised if ,on their return, they don't find the other one waiting for them.
All the best!

A beautiful poem, Deepak. Your way with the lines is brilliant.
All the best with the BAT.

Brijender Singh said...

Very,very well written !
The thoughts,the words and the meter all move in tandem-and are a sheer delight to read.
Reminded me a little of Byron's When we two parted.
Amazing writing.

Deepak said...

@ D2: thank u friend :)

@ brijender: I didn't feel like posting it first when it got completed, but I'm glad that I did and u liked :)

Sidra Sayeed said...

theres a fine line here between anger and remorse...logical words yet the wishing is all too evident.

Deepak said...

@ sidra: thanks a lot, glad u liked it :)

The Fool said...

Beautiful poem with a nice ending and a clear message.

However I found the below lines a bit out of synch. Seemed as if meaning was compromised to allow the rhyme.

If I mattered you wouldn't have left,
I wish your heart I wouldn't have theft.
But love doesn't knock the door,
now I realize, never did I before

Deepak said...

@ the fool: thanks for pointing out, But when I wrote it, I didn't find it out of synch. By the way, thanks again my friend :)
