Go Slowly, Come back Quickly, my Love

Love makes it harder to be apart
I die daily a wee bit, when you depart

Go slowly, come back quickly, My Love

Twin souls fused, we are one only
Both selves jiving in perfect harmony

Go slowly, come back quickly, My Love

I realize that constant journey you must
Still all my reasoning bites the dust

Go slowly, come back quickly, My Love

When you are gone for very long
My heart rejects every love song

Go slowly, come back quickly, My Love

The rooster,the sun, daily herald new day
They mean nothing to me, as you make my day

Go slowly, come back quickly, My Love

Life has color, when you are in its orbit
Else all is gray, each and every minute

Go slowly, come back quickly, My Love

My eyes seek you everywhere I turn
Reality is, you are me and I you, in union

Go slowly, come back quickly, My Love

Night has fallen everyone is homeward bound
Come nestle in my arms and let love resound

Go slowly, come back quickly, My Love

Thou art my sun, moon, stars and universe
In your absence, this life is just a curse

Go slowly, come back quickly, My Love
Go slowly, come back quickly, My Love
Never the time and the place and the loved one all together!
Robert Browning
1812-1889, British Poet

These two imparadised in one another’s arms, the happier Eden,
shall enjoy their fill of bliss on bliss.
John Milton
1608-1674, British Poet

Journeys end in lovers meeting.
William Shakespeare
1564-1616, British Poet, Playwright, Actor

Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs. Being purged, a fire sparkling
in lovers eyes. Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers tears. What is it
else? A madness most discreet, a choking gall and a preserving sweet.
William Shakespeare
1564-1616, British Poet, Playwright, Actor

Separated lovers cheat absence by a thousand fancies which have their own reality.
They are prevented from seeing one another and they cannot write; nevertheless they
find countless mysterious ways of corresponding, by sending each other the song of birds,
the scent of flowers, the laughter of children, the light of the sun, the sighing of the wind,
and the gleam of the stars –all the beauties of creation.
Victor Hugo 1802-1885, French Poet, Dramatist, Novelist

  1. Hey Bina,
    Amazing stuff..I am reading this for the first time and I am overwhelmed by the content.:-)
    Love is the only factor that binds any 2 souls on this earth ..As a coincidence, I was discussing the final departure of two old souls who are still very much in love.. how they wished to depart together…

    Each one seems to be a gem..

  2. Hello Bina…

    Amazing… reading your poetry on your website is more impressive than on Sulekha. The look, the feel and the message are bang on target… readers’ hearts. This poem is very very nice, feelings that probably every lady may have in her heart, but you just gave words to those feelings. Too good.
