Silent echoes in my soul

Silent echoes in my soul

I heard your silent response,

and saw your absent smile.

I felt your breath on me.

Could reach across and touch,

your face in my dreams.


I never want to wake up,

and face this impersonal world.

Let me be with you forever,

keep me in your thoughts too.


Maybe one day, we two shall meet,

crossing each other on the street.

You might remember me and,

I might forget, but meet we shall,

one fine glorious day.


Until then, I live on hope,

praying for your early return.

Daring to wish,

you miss me a bit,

and can’t Β stay away,

for long.



Sulekha aka Lucks

  1. I was creating music for your other post, not really knowing how to put my voice and your lyrics in it πŸ˜›

    I love your poetry Sulekha… your words are simple yet very deep… they do echo your soul…

    1. Melissa, I love what you do with my poems and how beautiful you make them πŸ™‚ Thank you for your lovely compliment.

  2. Sulekha, I love the nostalgia and yearning in this poem. It makes me remember the many loves I’ve had, but not fully had, if that makes any sense There’s always a bit of “what may have been” that makes us smile wistfully, isn’t there? Wishing you happiness and love in 2013. Roxy and I send hugs your way! πŸ™‚

    1. Welcome to my place, Bella and I know what you mean by what may have been. Life is like that πŸ™‚ Smiles hide so many emotions while displaying only one-happiness. Love to Roxy and you and a very happy 2013 to you and your family.
