A Safe Passage

For all those yesterdays
That you don't want me
To recall-

For all those memories
You want me to set free
From my stubborn hold-

For all the love, I thought, I had
In those yesterdays, with those memories...

You now offer me
A deal.

You promise me this:

That only in their redemption
and safe passage into the
Place they belong - the Past,
Will I find myself again;
And Love-
With you.

An offer I cannot refuse;
Stepping out of my past,
and into the circle of your love,

I am finally

And captivated!

  1. Yet, it is tough to let that past go. Isn't it?? For love was then too. But how wonderful to be captivated once again :)
    Love it.

  2. Shail, thank you :)

    Anu, read your lovely words on Disqus, but I do not know how to import it here, and it does not seem to show itself. :( Thanks for the note!

  3. Is there any other way?
    than being a willing prey.
    Whatever anyone may say
    I just love yesterday.

    A paradox, into the past by forgetting the past.

    And finally I could resist. Paul Mcartney's YESTERDAY.

  4. Wonderful, perfect writing, though left me feeling a bit sad...

  5. Govind, with love there little leeway
    You're in yesterday, and today
    Wondering if there is a middle way
    Finding, to utter desperation, oneself prey!

    Thanks, and yes, a paradox that is. Most things one tries to resolve, in life somehow, are. Love that Beatles' song. And this one, by the Carpenters!

    Aayushi, thanks so much :)


Thank you for stopping by to leave a note :)
