I turn around in my bed,
and reach out for you, my darling,
forgetting that you have left for your heavenly abode,
leaving me all alone in this world.
I look at the luminous clock by my bedside.
And find it is half an hour past midnight.
If you had been alive and by my side,
we would have entwined our bodies together.
I look up at the ceiling,
I am able to make out the blades of the fan.
And unable to withstand my grief any longer,
I get up from the bed.
I walk up to the toolroom,
and pull out a chord,
I come back with it to the bedroom,
and place a stool just below the fan.
I stand on the stool,
and loop the chord,
around a blade of the fan,
and make a noose.
I put my head through the noose,
determined to end it all.
But suddenly the window door crashes open,
and Moonlight streams in.
I pull my head out of the noose,
and step down from the stool.
I walk over to the window.
I am awestruck by the beauty of the full Moon.
It takes me back to the night,
when I carried you into this same room,
decked in a glorious wedding gown,
fresh as a daisy from a beautiful flower garden.
I remember the two of us,
standing by this very same window,
watching the full Moon,
and relishing its shining beauty.
Tonight, when you are not with me,
it is not the Moon and its glory I see.
Instead, I see your lovely face etched on the Moon,
smiling at me from the sky with love.
I suddenly realize that,
even though you are not with me in the flesh,
you are still very much with me in spirit,
as vibrant as ever.
I stand there for a long time,
looking up at the sky,
filling my heart with the love,
I see in your face etched on the Moon.
Finally, after I had filled my heart and soul to the brim,
with the essence of the love on your beautiful face,
I walk back, flop down into my bed and close my eyes,
and slip into dreamland where I am with you.
