When You Are Not Around

by Yogesh Bhatt

 

Where are you, my beloved?

I wait for the fragrance of your body.

I must face my affliction,

the lack of your presence,

when you are not around.

 

My grief emerges,

burning holes in my life.

The pain is unforgiving.

Whether alive or dead,

the verdict is the same,

when you are not around,

 

Death has taken you away

and won’t bring you back.

I am aware of that.

In my dreams I find you,

when you are not around.

 

Joining you in those dreams

would console me.

The life I lived so far,

and in the future,

a shadow of the past,

when you are not around.

 

Other people will cross my path,

but that is not the same.

No one can replace you.

So I will live this life alone,

when you are not around.
