i miss u




I stand on the footpath
and i see the world go by
there is a profound guilt
that would often make me cry

If only I could get one chance
to correct my mistake
but, Oh, life is not a film
where I could give a retake

I wish I was there by her side
when she needed me
I wish i could take care of her
that would have set me free

Everybody has to go someday
but now i feel so lost.
Now I have no one to guide me
Oh Maa i miss you the most.

  1. Simply lovely. We all forget our Maa in this busy schedule & hectic lifestyle. Thank God I am spending quality time with her right now. :) In 2 years I would be mairied off & this thinking really makes her cry sometimes. :) Sorry, for sharing this but just out of remorse I was bound to say this. Beautiful poetry! :) Really got me thinking :) Take care friend

  8. We miss people the most when they're gone forever from our lives, and hope that we had taken the chance to not miss them when we had it. Emotional poem, Renu. Well written.

  9. I can understand the pain. We don't realise that we are often away and not there when they need us. Even if they don't require us for their needs, we can just be there as they still love us.

  11. 1. It's a poem on a blog primarily meant for short stories. I find it a refreshing change, it's more sublime than your stories.
    2. The author has a penchant for replying to comments in emoticons.

    keep writing in this vein.
