First penned on 11th April 1995

Like a whiff of fresh air
you came into my life
And vanished with a sudden sweep of the breeze;

Like the soft shining dew
on the face of a petal
You rested on the surface of my palm,

But one ray of sunlight
And you just washed away;

Like an early morning dream
You blinked on the lashes of my eye
But disappeared into oblivion
With the first woken moment;
You were there yesterday
Next to me in flesh and blood
Today you are lost
Wrapped beneath the sands of time;

You hummed in my heart
Like a tune echoing in the woods
But amidst worldly din
You turned into silence of the dead;

Like a lone, exquisite icicle
You hung from the isolated
corner of my mind
But onslaught of maddening thoughts
And you melted away;

Like an illusion harbouring on the subconscious
You played with my life
But  a return to reality
And you were nowhere in sight.
