An Unspoken Love

By: Rohit Leandro Leandro

It struck like a flash of lightening and caught me unaware;
I felt a surge of life within, with it an urge to care.

I never thought that once again I would dare to fall in love.
And yet I hadn’t fallen but was flying high above.

The world has set up fences and them I must accept!
Alas! Against all my senses I must make myself adept.

I wish that I could hold her for a moment of divinity;
And in my arms I’d keep her till the end of eternity.

Even though I see in her eyes a daze that’s there in mine,
To the world I show a sea of lies; I force myself to shine.

But even through a silent gaze I hear her dampened breath.
I know that it’s a dreamy haze, perhaps the sweetest way to death.

A smile, I put upon my face, and wish her loads of love,
And though my heart still beats with pace, I’ll love her from above.

I promise her that in her quest, whenever there is a bend,
She can count on me and I’ll be there, I’ll always be a friend.

I pray that she’ll remember me through all her days of joys and strife
That unspoken love I gift to her... a memory for life!
