To Charles with Love!

I am waiting for me to turn 49.
Sooner mentally, if you count maturity.
Then the world will get to know
Of the prolonged battles hard fought,
Of the loves evanescent.
Of the sentiments bittersweet,
Of the stubborn commitments I kept,
Of the promises made to fail.
And of poems too pellucid to betray the labour.
Until when I become the poet of your choice
I am waiting for me to turn 49.
