Where are you now?

I search for you in the streets, now empty.

It’s too cold with your arm no longer around me.

Where are you now?

As I trace along the path we walked,

I feel my soul buried within the emotions I locked.

Where are you now?

The view from that bench isn’t the same.

That beauty is lost. Tell me, who is to blame?

Where are you now?

It’s you I see wherever I turn,

I need you now, I have so much to learn.

Where are you now?

You are now a part of my song,

Without you, don’t you know it is all wrong?

Where are you now?

Let this lamp illuminate your face again.

Come and free me from this painful chain.

Where are you now?

Baby, where are you now?



Yuhu’s Corner

Have you ever walked in a street where you once walked with a loved one? Somehow everyone in that street would look like the one in mind. Isn’t that so? At least, that’s how it is, for me.

I hope you have all been doing great. I recently visited Stockholm, Sweden. In fact, I returned just today. I must say, I have fallen in love with the city. I don’t think my memories about this wonderful city would ever fade away. The photograph you see in this post was taken in Stockholm.

  1. Thus was beautiful… It reminded me of a song I like a lot – Faded by Alan Walker. Your poetry has that same sense of loss that the song evokes in me, that same sense of the ‘there’s no going back from here’ feeling.

    So how was the trip to Stockholm?

    1. You are brilliant. This one and the next one, ‘Hold on’ are inspired by ‘Faded’. I love that song. I was inspired by the song as well. The title, ‘Where are you now?’ is from that song.

      My trip to Stockholm was one of the best trips ever. I walked for at least 10kms every day. The greenery and all the lakes and streams just blew me away.

      I think this is a terribly long reply. Sorry. πŸ˜ƒ


      1. I LOVE long replies. It shows just how engaging the conversation is. So we have songs in common as well? Ha ha ha. That’s so cool! This is my daughter’s favorite too, she loves to sing to it.

        Stockholm and I suppose all of Sweden, is so beautiful. I wish I could go there some day. One pahadi in another pahad. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ glad to know you enjoyed the trip. Hope your next one comes soon 😊

        1. Thanks, Pradita. I’m not sure when I’ll get to visit such places again. Let’s hope for the best.

          Speaking of your daughter, did you not say that she was interested in drawing? Why don’t you post something that you guys drew together? It’s wonderful that she likes to sing too.
