Today – 21st March 2011 is World Poetry Day.
I have been ransacking trough my collection of poems and landed on this one. This is my dedication to you my reader on this very special day.
In this room,
Thoughts of you engulf me,
Your smooth voice,
And I reach for your hand,
Only that this time, it is just an illusion!
A lot happens in this room,
Lots of ideas are born,
And deals are closed.
Your absence surpasses them all.
In this room, I am but alone!
Your photograph adorns the wall,
The sparkle in your eyes,
If only I could touch you,
I could tell you how much I miss you,
Only that this time, it is just a photograph!

May your day be good.
