My Own: Poem

While I fear someone will push me off of the edge,/The mountains tell me, “Don’t worry darling, I will catch you”.

While I fear someone will push me off of the edge,
The mountain tells me, “Don’t worry darling, I will catch you”. 
While everyone’s chasing the sunshine,
I find solace in the dark foothills of Kanchenjunga. 
While everyone searches for their one,
I sit under the moonlight, the crisp night wind kissing me all over. 
While everyone’s out there fulfilling their dreams;
I wait for the Toy Train to arrive. 
While he sings for her,
The soft rustle of leaves put me to sleep. 
So, when I fall…deep deep down leaving all the shrieking cries behind,
The Queen of the Hills, my coffee scented Darjeeling—
Sighs and tells me,
“It’s been too long, my love. Welcome home”.

Fetish for good music and good food are two things which Kamalini would never compromise with.
