I wont let you go

I wont let you go
Not today
When I’ve so much to say
And you, so much to listen to
I haven’t told you
About the flowers that bloom
The winds that blow,
And the birds that flutter
I haven't yet loved you
to my hearts content
I haven’t told you
That I need you to stay

We haven’t seen
The sun, setting low
We haven’t watched the stars,
Lying on our back
We are yet to let the waves
Tickle our toes.
Our lives have just begun
You can’t just go.

I wont let you go
Not tomorrow
I have given you nothing
I haven’t let your skin drape mine
I haven’t let our senses rule
And our bodies speak
I haven’t loved you enough
I wont let you go

I haven’t sung your favourite song
I haven’t kissed you deep enough
I am yet to let you love me proper
We haven’t seen the seasons pass by
Drunk we have not
The wine of togetherness
Our love is soaring
How can I let you go?

I wont let you go
Not today, never tomorrow
I can’t let you go
Ever…

i decided to "chance upon". :)
you have written another poem. it is light. and like a boatsong heard over a moonlit beach. soars and falls and sometimes is lost in the sound of the surges.

and that profile pic is really arresting. im no big fan of leighton. but this piece he has done is just too passionate, and true to the school.

"We are yet to let the waves
Tickle our toes."

Must say .. I really slipped into the feel of the poem .. Even after several conscious attempts to read it casually just like any other string of words , i failed .

Those lines really make my toes tickle even now ! .. Believe it or not ... Good work .. You keep getting better Vrinda .. Love the way you make others feel what you want them to feel ..

Wonderful, personal poem that resists comments...true-blue stuff, I'd just envy it rather. And true to form, couldn't help feeling sad about that one verse that mars an otherwise flawless composition:
"Drunk we have not
The wine of togetherness..."
This aspect change could have been avoided, but as far as we've seen, that's just you, and it comes with the package.
Wonderful poem.
PS "Never tomorrow" is also not quite right. "Nor tomorrow", perhaps?
