When I grope in darkness not finding my life,
Knowing I must trudge along on unknown path,
I miss you, my darling, beside me.

When I grope the empty bed beside me,

Early in the morning in half-awake stupor.

 

When I wait, newspaper in hand,

For my morning’s first cup of tea.

 

When, unmindful of the scorching sun,

I walk to the grocer, bag in hand.

 

When I sit at the edge of the waterline,

Watching breakers wet my lonely feet.

 

When I wait for my turn amid jostling crowd

At the roadside stall of paani-puri-wallah.

 

When I take my customary evening walk,

Under the shady trees in the nearby park.

 

When I face the good, the bad, the ugly,

The ups and downs, and vicissitudes of life.

 

When I grope in darkness not finding my life,

Knowing I must trudge along on unknown path.

 

I miss you, my darling, beside me.
