The Moon and The Child

by Puneet 'Bekal', Sant Nirankari Colony, Delhi, India

I asked the moon "why are u so alone.

"He replied "yeah, I’m alone, I’m alone for u.

So that u don’t think, u are the only one living alone."

"Then why haven’t u called me from ages."

"I haven’t call u, bcoz it’s good to see the changes."

I’ve seen it all,

Seen u on bed from where u fall.

Seen u on ground where u used to crawl.

Seen u fighting for the same old ball.

Seen u playing till your mother doesn’t call.

I’ve seen u cry, Cry

for the fear u had.

Cry for the scolding u get.

Cry for not getting what u want.

Cry for someone, when he was gone.

I’ve seen u happy,

When u got your robo man.

When u gave your dream a name.

When u saw the sun go down.

When u ran in the rain, going insane.

I’ve seen u scared,

From that old man down the corner.

From the shadows, those were in your imaginations.

From your mom when u used to lie.

From the thunder, when u used to run and hide.

I’ve seen u angry,

With your friends, bcoz u thought they cheated.

With your teachers, for the punishments they gave.

With yourself, when u blamed it all to u.

With God for taking all u want.

I’ve seen u there,

Where u used to run when u thought nobody care.

Where there was only u, with your dreams.

Where u thought you’ll find that someone who’ll stay.

Where, u found thy self.

So now u know it wasn’t just u, it was me with u…
