Let him not wake up!

Within me too, is a romantic person,
But he is in deep slumber.
All I want is-
He shall never wake up.
If he does… I fear
I may fall in love
And feel the pain.
I may lose the vision of real world
And see just her as the whole.
I may forget my life’s true purpose
And become a clown in love circus.
If the long for love becomes
A never-ending solo song,
I may lose my senses
And wander on streets
Singing sad love tunes.
I may deny the food
And beg for beer.
I may even think of pulling down
My life show’s curtain and…
Even after death, I fear… 
My soul may not rest in peace.
So… pretty gals, all around…
Please don’t wake him up!
