ON THE FIRST DAY YOU PLAYED YOUR CELLO

On the first day you played your cello

When the notes rang softly

Dragging time forever

In strings pulled strongly

I wondered the thought

That lay in that oval face

Then, what was at the base

Making a shine of bliss

To plant a halo at your crown?

It seemed all with ease

The slow rough smooch

Deftly dealt the ropes

Held firmly by the nuts

Hiding the knots of your heart

 

Somewhere, Nature played too

In that song except silence

The birds invading the space

Their presence

Amplified all through…

The soulful notes sang on

Then you stopped…

 

Strikes of applause

Thunderously fell all

Rising to hail, you to stand tall

In glee

But tears are what came to be

Torrents of them rushing

Washing the joy

That emptiness denies

 

Just one could have changed it all…

One, the very thing to compensate…

Might’ve stopped you from the take-off

That led to the terminal of your fate

Your crash that befell that day…

Lately, the wicked teacher gives lessons late

Experience eating enormously all this way

And the job counts no more

Nor the video I watch of your first- only show

Dead on the very first day you played your cello

 

A million wishes I was there

Slowly string stronger songs

No heart would ever hear…

Even as I play your cello, for the first time

Without you
