The Night I First Saw You - A Hayate x Nagi Poem By Roop Banerjee
As promised, this blog isn't losing momentum just because the manga is over. For today, we have a lovely little poem by guest, Roop Banerjee. You might remember that she wrote the review for chapter 567. This is a poem from Hayate's point of view. There is a video included with the poem recited by Roop and some fanart by me of 16 year old Nagi and 19 year old Hayate. With that said, on to the poem!
The Night I First Saw You
By Roop Banerjee
On Christmas Eve I first saw you,
It was a night full of thrill;
You dazzled me with your eyes,
For me, time stood still.
Your childlike and naive self
Tore my defenses apart,
Your voice had a warmth in it
That melted my frozen heart.
I tried to seize you,
To survive for another day,
But that night your entire being
Stole my consciousness away.
For when peril arrived for real,
I could no longer wish to die,
At that moment I heard nothing
Apart from your piercing cry.
You mean the world to me
And even if I end up dead;
I'll be happy as long as you're safe
And I shall have no regret.
You're no longer dependent on me;
But I still am, on you;
And I need you to need me,
Although there are reasons few.
For I have hurt you a lot,
Never knew what you felt,
I didn't realise my own feelings,
For you that I held.
I'm happy that you love me,
Although initially I was amazed,
And I'm holding onto my hope
That your feelings remain unchanged.
I’ll always be near you,
While watching you from afar
And I shall protect you forever,
Like I’ve promised to a star.
I won't reveal myself,
Until you call me out;
For the time being I'll remain hidden
And stealthily roam about.
On Christmas Eve it all started,
On Christmas Eve we crossed paths;
And tonight on this Christmas Eve,
Three years will have passed.
It's been so long since our fateful meeting,
Those bygone days have been golden times
And still our bond survives;
I know that we're meant to be together
For the rest of our lives.
That's all for now, see you in the next post... which will feature an awesome AMV for Hayate and Nagi by another guest. Also here are some variations of that fanart. The dialogue was originally written by mellhurst once upon a group chat.
