Silent Promise

I know its not easy
but am willing to try,
to be the wailing wall
when you need to cry.

I'll be the pin cushion
to take all your hurt,
or be the teddy bear
if you desire a cuddly spurt.

I'll be the closet
in which you can hide,
or be the veil
if you just want to step aside.

I'll be all ears
for all you wanna say,
or be a partner
if you need a gentle sway.

I'll be the melody
that your heart sings,
or be a perfume
when the world stinks.

I'll even be a nobody,
if that's what you desire.
Just to see you happy
is all that I aspire.

I'll be a friend
if you need it the most,
but please dear don't cry
as it hurts me the most.

Its so damn touching man ... By far one of the nicest ones I have read on your blog ...

Actually as you know I am not an avid reader of poems ... but this one has got something in it that i can connect to , something that i can identify with ... something friendly ... something painfully romantic ...

What the hell ... prakash has started loving poetries ... unreal man !!
