Poetry

Dew

I wish I could explain how much I miss you

How in each second of my day

Even when I turn off all lights

My eyes shine in the light you gave me

Or the brush that you handed me over

To paint the air that I breathed

When I could not breathe you

Or the ache of the void in my heart

That you etched through your eyes

How through those little words

And short sentences

You broke the unshackled me

From the fences of my heart

I wish I could define it

It was maybe as small as the sky

Or as mighty as the dew drop

Namita Satija
