Don’t Walk Away So Far

Don’t walk away so far….
That you walk away too far…
That when you choose to return
That if you choose to return,
You may find me gone…..

Don’t walk away so far….
That you leave me so behind
That you make my hopes fall…
That you steal my memories all…
That you can no more hear my call…
That you leave behind a wall
Too strong…too opaque…too impregnable and tall……

Don’t walk away so far….
That you seem a distant star…
That your picture gets to blur
That your memory begins to pale…
That in loving you
That in waiting for you
I may entirely fail…..

-Ritesh Agarwal
