look after me when you're gone
caress my mad fancies, wild desires
put me to sleep with tender kisses
will fulfil my life in thousands of ways
quarrel with you on flimsy grand issues
divine the innermost thoughts of the heart
fall sick, God forbid, and are lonely
lie beside you and soak away all the heat
didn't stop me, didn't block my way
pull me back to hold in tight embrace
shout, ‘Stop! Don’t go away, dear!
shattering, mine heart and life'
Where am I
going? To bigger things in life
for Dharm4 and friendship
kingdoms and Geeta5 and Mahabharat6
for mere mortals, let me be God!
again at the top of the ladder
still waving ‘Good Bye, good bye, bye'
over, I lose both my love and life
moves and comes back again to take off
engines whirl, Oh! the storms in my gasps
runs wildly, as runs amuck my heart
I see her through tears and haze
lift and senseless I fly away upwards
Oh! I came
a stranger, became the Dearest
leave now, life, miserable life!
never, never, love a foreigner
‘God bless you, Good bye, Dearest!'

[THE END! Really? But there is something before this
also. And Parting is not the end of Odyssey of Love. Before this
