Do Not Sigh My Darling Do Not Do It | A Poem by Anuradha Fonseka

Do not sigh my darling do not do it
I want to feel your warm breath not your sighs
I want to hear your laughs not your cries
Do not sigh my darling do not do it

Whisper softly into my ears
The deepest thoughts of your heart
The fears, the dreams, the love
Yet do not sigh my darling do not do it

I know what you are afraid of
I know where your dreams are directing
But not the sighs you let out
When you think of me and us

I do not know where these sighs go
I do not know if that is uncertainty
Or the utmost despair
So do not sigh my darling do not do it

Do you know how fiery these sighs are
Do you know how they burn me
Do you know how they ruin me alive
So my darling do not sigh I beg you do not do it
