State of being - Manushya Puthiran

Image result for longing painting

To stay with you
To be with you
that was my
constant prayer

The day you arrived and claimed
‘Here I come, just only to be with you ’,
I realized that             
being is
a state of waiting

the moment you are with me
weighs heavier
than the moment
you are away
