The Love that Cannot Wait for a Day - Manushya Puthiran

Image result for wilting flower  painting

When you proposed to me
being a little old-fashioned as I am
I needed a day’s time
To say yes

The next day
When I approached you
 With a flower
You had passed that by
You didn’t even remember
having asked for it

The love that can’t wait for a single day
The love that can’t hold for one day
I kept saying
to myself
