Inspired by a poem 'Woh jo hum main tum main Qarar tha' ( The pledge of love)by Urdu poet Momin Khan Momin


Once in this lifetime,

Between you and I

there was

a brief acknowledged familiarity,

a touch of fondness

a glow of happiness

and a secret path

to endless nights

unspoken pledges


I wonder with a heavy heart

 Days, months, years and decades

stand between you and I

I still remain

perched on the same very step,

where you left

Today I wont lament

as our eyes meet again,

will only inquire, a fleeting check,

If you remember it at all?

Poignant. It grips at the heart, yet it. Is gentle and tender. The simple question at the end that can bring tears to anyone who has loved deeply. I love this poem with its simplicity and emotion. Will bookmark to read often. +
