Do I tell you? A poem. (Blog marathon post 8)



Do I tell you?

Do I tell you about the way your eyes lit up,
With a hundred questions unasked, unanswered.
Or do I tell you about happiness multiplied manifold
With precious stolen moments, cherished, treasured.

Do I tell you about the words unsaid, but perfectly understood,
Each nuance amplified like it was on a giant billboard.
Or do I tell you about the million racing thoughts,
Whirling dervishes, a thousand stories enacted untold.

Do I tell you about the placid lake, blueness unbound,
And the sun that played truant when the clouds danced.
Or do I tell you about racing heartbeats uncontained,
Gratitude, sheer contentment and bliss, triply enhanced.

Do I tell you about   the cherished memories made today,
For a while ,when the world outside stayed across the boundary.
Or do I tell you that narratives are only for prose
And a perfect day like this was nothing but sheer poetry.
