Past – Unforgotten

July 13, 2015 | By

A wistful entourage of memories of an old love soon to be buried under the recesses of a young girl’s mind, addressed to her mother just before her wedding.

No matter how difficult the road ahead looks to me, I‘ll endure

No matter how difficult the road ahead looks to me, I‘ll endure

Forget him, I absolutely cannot Ma

It isn’t so easy that I would be able to do it in a Voila!!

What seems wrong today, wasn’t so yesterday

You cannot sit on judgement on life’s ways

Life cannot be always a bed of roses

One cannot get everything that one chooses

I had to stumble, I had to fall

To learn life’s lessons, from this past treason

I know I am getting married tomorrow

I will erase all animate traces of my past

From today onwards I have left my mind fallow

That has withstood deceit so callow

I will not let my past destroy my future

Any gaping hole in my heart I will painfully suture

No matter how difficult the road ahead looks to me, I‘ll endure

I have always embarked on unchartered destinations

Without an iota of hesitation

Like a phoenix I will arise and plod ahead unbidden

I have become adept at weaving myriad hued rainbows

From looming nimbus cloud

My dazzling smile tomorrow all pain will shroud

I will sweat out all thoughts of him from my every pore

But chisel those memories out completely from my soul; well I am not so sure

Tomorrow clad in my red Benarasi, sandal paste and jasmine flowers

I will dethrone him from my heart’s bower

Time might heal all the pain and heartbreak I endured

But time can never cure the anguish of erasing my love that was so pure.
