I Believe to Believe in You!


Feelings pen down in the form of POEM

I have put my faith in the Belief…
To believe in you!

You said when “I am ‘THERE’!”
I am ‘THERE’!
Today I want YOU to ask yourself for OUR sake,
‘Are you really ‘THERE’?

I was a DEAD flower preserved in between the pages of life,
You came, picked me up and gave the life, the fragrance back…
Making me bloom once again!

I was lost in my DARK world, not even bordering to take the minimum doses of light….
You came providing me all the required SUNSHINE I needed!

I was all a STRAIGHT face without forming any curves on my lips…
You came SMILING to brighten my day, teaching me that it is the best exercise for the heart and face.

I was all COLD on the peak of negligence mode for myself, losing all my CHARM and chirpiness…
You came with the most innocent and captivating style of CAPTURING anybody’s heart!

HERE, I started to Believe that I BELIEVE in You!
But then all of a sudden, World went upside down!
Everyone now is trapped with this new unseen virus and disease!
Now when we all are learning to adopt this new lifestyle,
Coping up with uncertainties and natural disasters,
I started feeling you not being ‘THERE’!

You are there but not THERE!

I am struggling daily, thinking how to express myself to get you back, making you realize that
I miss you

Those days have come now for which I wasn’t prepared at all!
I laugh to make you smile, but these seems like an impossible task
to be achieved ever!

I am putting all my efforts with full confidence to get you back!
To conquer the unachievable, but it seems like VAIN to make you happy and get you back on track!

I am day by day deteriorating, failing to make you understand how much you are WANTED and NEEDED!

Now, whenever you say I am THERE!
Why do I miss the ZEST?
Why do I miss the US?
Why do I miss the depth of our conversations, jokes, cute fights and healthy arguments?
Why do I feel everything has come to a STANDSTILL?

Yes, you are THERE, I agree
PERFECTLY fulfilling the duties of multiple characters in your life!
But, in between these multiple characters of yours, I am going crazy searching for ‘YOU’ and only ‘YOU’!

I just want to convey a simple message to you here, that
If you are ‘THERE’
Everything is ‘THERE’
Else I can’t even think and express,
And explain to you the reality that will be faced by all your loved ones!
That how Everything will get RUINED and LOST!!!

I want YOU to Believe now in my Belief –
I Believe that I Believe in YOU!
It’s only you who can keep this belief going –
“If I am ‘THERE’, I am ‘THERE’!”
