“Not There” – Nayana Nair

Stay right beside me.
Stay till I fall asleep.
Once my eyes have given up,
on seeing the world for what it is
and failing each time.
When my hold on your fingers
loosens breath by breath.
When I finally fall asleep.
Let me dream of a love for us
that hurts little less.
Live the life that I dream of.
Even if I am not there.

  1. Wow! Rich imagery. We are called to reality, fact is this world is a mix of hurt, failing, disappointment mixed with a touch of hope that will overcome all the mess we live in. Reality is then what invisible world is remaining after this visible world is made new, Our reality is yet directly unseen. Yet, hints of this unseen world are now dimly viewed in a glass/vision/dream for now.

    In true Hope,
    Denny
