Smiley Moon

At the dead hour of the night, when the world was hushed in sleep;

I lay awake alone in my bed struggling to bring my eyelashes together.

There was not a single sound to be heard save the dead beat escapement of my wrist watch

Counting with a hollow voice the footsteps of time in a ceaseless round.

I rolled from one side of the bed to another; this time facing towards the window.

With a slight push, I opened it bringing in a mild wave of breeze, it felt pleasant.

It tempted my vision to go beyond that window and gaze out.

No sight that our eyes can look upon is more provocative of an awe than the night sky scattered thick with stars and the moon glowing brightly.

A moonlit night is nature’s sweetest offering having a lasting effect on the mind.

I kept both of my hands behind my head

with a clutch and lied down relaxing.

I stared at the magnificent moon which looked exactly like a smiley, perfect and appropriate crescent.

It looked so right as if someone far was watching from the night sky and smiling at me.

Someone who can’t be separated by any distance from my heart.

Someone who made me believe that miracles do happen in life.

Someone who made me realize trust for anyone is far greater than true love.

Yes, I miss her, miss her badly.

But it felt as if her sweet and charming smile was reflected by the moon, trying to please me.

May be, the whole night sky was decorated glamorously by her just to impress me.

In reality, I may be very far from her but the smile was communicating to me,

Though I can’t see her or have her near now, but she is always there with me closest to my heart.

Gazing at that smiling moon with a smile on my cheeks wet, I uttered hypnotically only one thing

“My dear I love you and miss you.”
