Sleepless without You

I have stopped counting the stars,

And dream of making a home of love,

For the two of us in Mars,

Sleep of mine is taking a nap telling me to shove.


I know that you don’t care,

Whether I breathe my last or exist,

But you will certainly repent for losing a heart so rare,

As the leaves badly miss the touch of the mist.   


You can bring sleep in my world with only a little smile,

Not a big one since it may turn me into Kumbhakarna for a while.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

In the great Hindu epic “Ramayana”, Kumbhakarna was the brother of Ravana and son of Visravas and Kaikasi. He slept for six months and was fully awake for another six months.
