A Little Lad With His Big Dog

A little lad and his big dog shared an eternal relationship
Two different species of creation depicted an everlasting friendship
As they were strongly bonded through their emotions so deep

They shared with each other a deep level of understanding
Their mutual sense of affection is simply outstanding

They sense each other by the pattern of their behavior
This natural love is synonymous to a supernatural culture

This is true they can’t part from each other
They never imagined there would be something to bother

But here is a day when both will be separated
Tears rolled down their cheeks as their hearts melted

Traumatized by a pathetic feeling of dismay and sorrow
Which can neither be borne nor some one can borrow

They gaze constantly with a flawlessly helpless attitude
The dog wagged its tail as an expression of gratitude

The moment overwhelmed with a nostalgic wave of emotion
The young lad was traveling away to another nation

The pain they expressed is beyond any word or description
To heal this agonizing trauma, there could not be any prescription

With an expression of silence, they uttered a million words
This quite expression by far surpassed the effects of vocal cords

With sobbed eyes, they bid each other good bye
Despite monsoon, the season appeared so dry

They came close and embraced tightly with a heave of sigh
In another some time, the lad was about to fly

Ultimate moment came when they parted with a groan of despair
With shattered emotions and broken hearts which no one can repair
Such an intense torment in life was evidently very unfair

As the mom came and took the lad away that very noon
I prayed sincerely that they again unite very soon

Awestruck I stood, it was both pleasure and pain at the same time
To experience this pure moment untouched by any grime

I would forever cherish this heavenly love that day of the monsoon
Such a divine nostalgic phenomena occurs only once in a blue moon

Thank You
