December


December has returned.

After a long fruitless but patient wait, December has returned.
Just as the sun shines after a storm, December brightens my day.
Just like cold winter nights, December makes me shake and shiver.

In the trembling, shivering loneliness, why does December tease me?
On a cold, sad evening, why does December make me cry?
December returned… again.

To make me weave more dreams.... to build castles in the air, December has returned.
But, where are you, my love?
Just like last year, has December come alone?
Without you, barren is December.
Between you and me is December.
I cry and surprised is December…
For me… how worried is December!
Today, my pride is December.

Listen, December...
Please do me a favor.
When you come next year
Come with him.
Bring him along with you.
Please, December.

  6. Hi Raaji,
    Your December is lonely because you equate it with human relationship and the warm feelings that go with it. Why don't you equate December as a bonding month between you and your Creator and then you will never be lonely when December comes. When our relationship with our Creator is all right, our relationship with our fellowmen including the love of our life will be all right too. Just trust the Lord that He will give you the man of your dreams in His own time and then you will never be lonely again come Christmas time. Merry Christmas in advance. Seek the heavenly values in life and you will never have a blue Christmas, ever. Thanks for the poignant and melancholy poem. Have a nice and warm day.

  17. ah! splendid! :0)
    I loved the way u wrote it! :)

    "A blanket of pristine emptiness
    Lay over a silent world
    Motionless in the center of perfection
    Barely breathing, barely blinking
    Afraid to take a single step
    In fear that I may shatter
    The tranquil balance of my universe."
