Reading Time: 2 minutes

Nandita is in conversation with a loved person, in an evocative poem, for Different Truths.

‘This is not the last meeting’
Goes the lyrics of a song
At every nook and turning
I keep hearing, all along

My heartstrings whimpering,
I let out a moan
He beckoned, whispering
“I’m here, you’re not alone.

“I will never fade away
I feel your feelings, all
I know well what you want
I will never let you fall.”

The voices in my ears,
Familiar and sweet
Work on me like fire
In my aching desire to meet

I hope, I weep, I ponder
Will I ever touch the voice?
I reach out to try my luck
But, do I hear him rejoice?

And when I can’t take it anymore
“This is not the last,” he says
My heart, churning at the core
I hum his song in daze

But now I know I am blessed
I know who is he!
He will meet me someday, as promised
Just a soul being nice to me

A soul being nice to me.
