Adieu Chum

You came tiptoeing into the fortress that I build, Broke the shackles that cinched my soul, with your shimmering eyes. Disintegrated the iron chains that I wore, with the warmth of your smile and the fondness in your heart. Liberating caged birdie, which I held on. Au naturel I am now. Looking at life yet again with a child like glee. Buddy, berserk I wish to go, with the news of your departure. Wish I could hide you from all, Keeping you all for myself. But I have to let you go To explore new frontiers, And make new friends. Fly my friend, fly I would not hold you back, though my heart bleeds And my soul cries. A space in my crimson hollow you would always have, Silently, wishing you more smiles, and more happiness where ever you go. ©Chitra Arun Nov 2022
