Parched Earth

For my best friend Shamim

The other day I stood and watched in awe,
Fixed to the ground,
I couldn't move,
I watched you,
The sparkle in your eyes,
The bright smile,
The calculated walk,
The perfection in your words,
The you.

I watched as your feet graced the pathway,
Your gown caressing your epic body,
The cameras clicking your way.
I watched as you blinked for the upteenth time,
Trying in vain to block your tears,
I watched as the bouquet trembled in your hands,
And your generous smile,
The gem in you...
I watched it glow brighter than ever before.

And our memories flashed in my mind,
How you held me so close,
Like a blood sister,
How you wanted my tender life to be smooth,
How you wiped my tears with the hem of your dress,
How you and I were inseparable...
Thirteen years later,
I still want to cry with you on your big day,
To hold you back one last time,
I still want to be us.

I watched as the two of you danced around,
How he held your veil against your face,
How you kissed,
How you cut the cake,
Damn girl,
You looked cute.

Now I watch the stars every night,
I see your eyes in their shine,
I see the moon smiling at me,
I am happy you are happy,
For sometimes love is the best witness,
And you,
Will testify.
