    I took the long route today ,
    even though your
    presence was absent ,
    I took the long route today ,
    I walked through the same route
    that I walk with you always ,
    though the loud excited voice describing incessantly
    the recent events happened
    in your life
    didn’t draw my attention this day , though the cologne of tinge of sweat and the familiar perfume in the air
    was missing while I was breathing in , though a figure walking with
    lazy steps , slow pace ,
    with a swinging way
    was not here by my right side today ,
    still I could feel your presence ;
    and so ,
    I walked with slower pace
    just as I walk with you
    so that I don’t leave you behind
    and so that I’m walking beside
    you by your side .
    I stayed silent and listened to your voice in my mind
    just the way I silently listen
    to your stories .
    I smiled to myself just the way I do when you are there by my side .

    “ Where are you ? ”
    “ Why haven’t you come today ? ”
    “ It’s been so many days since
    I’ve last seen you ,
    breathed in your fragrance ,
    and heard your voice ”
    “ Are you alright ?
    Is everything alright ? ”
    “ Are you ill ? ”
    “ Has anything happened to you ? ”
    “ Are you going to come tomorrow ? ”

    This place . .
    this place feels
    so different
    without you
    by my side ,
    I got so used to
    your presence .
    “ Where are you ? ”
