On My Girl

courtesy: dVerse

“Isn’t there any recent photo of her?”

“Many. But I want her to dwell in my heart only”

“I am so sorry. I didn’t mean…

“It’s okay. There’s touch of her

On the floors

On the walls

On the garden path

Everywhere outside

Where all could see her

Now it’s only her and me

In my heart

She will reside

Till my Deep slumber”


Posted for MTB dVerse: What’s That You’re Saying!?


  1. So heart touching and the traces of love are everywhere even after its long gone............

  2. This is so incredibly real.. the sorrow when bereft linger everywhere.. the air itself seem to be filled with those that left. Very real when you bring it in as a conversation, I felt like a fly on the wall.

  3. Ha. Ok, this can be read a couple ways. First, really endearing with hints of her still all around him. But the first time I read it I was thinking he killed her and there were bits of her everywhere.

    Sorry, it is probably just my sick twisted mind. Ha.

  4. I like that she resides with you in your heart ~ A very touching write Sumana ~

  5. I do understand this poem, Sumana. The heart does not need a photographic reminder. The heart just knows what the heart knows, and that is enough.

  6. This is so touching... indeed our beloved.. reside inside our hearts.
    Beautifully penned.

    Lots of love,

  7. There is much truth in this--photos may serve as reminders but they do not encompass a person in the same way those memories within us do.

  8. So true.. deepest
    Love dying eYes
    rests aLives
    Breath USLight..:)

  9. Yes, memories held close can comfort a broken heart.

  10. Very simple, yet so vulnerable and so powerful. Beautiful writing Sumana.

  11. A touching poem, penned beautifully :)

  12. Bittersweet...and so much said in a nice tight write. Lovely.
