What comes after when -- poetry by Tanvi Nagar
When love begins, people question- how long,
Will it last for infinite lifetimes ahead?
When the shadows of love are outlined in the dark-
Will this love be mine-with mind, body and spirit?
But I don’t ask those questions,
Instead, I simply wonder
What, what is the purpose of meeting whom I’ve met.
