Pramoy Pratap | 2 comments Your shadow flits through the woods;
Pauses in the pale morning glow.
I can smell you in the mist,
I need to catch up before I forget.

I run, outstretched arm reaching;
You fade with the clearing haze.
With each stride I draw closer
But now you disappear into the dawn.

I stop, rummage through notes, memories.
Try to make you with the words.
But I haven't seen your face yet;
And now I wait like before, and hope.
