Recall the day,
When we two swayed to and fro in forest,
In a swing tied with strings of flowers.
Let the memory of same moment by moment,
Arise sometimes in your mind.
Please forget not.
You also know -
On that day, the air was laced with my delusory talks.
And your smile was being compared all across the sky,
As it lay scattered there.
And while I was moving on the road,
Moon rose in the sky.
It was full moon night.
A momentous meeting took place between you and me.
May be it occurred in some great moment of life,
I am not certain of.
Now at present, I have no time left for myself.
I have but to bear the pain of separation, all by myself.
The brotherly string of ‘Rakhee”, which I had tied round your heart,
Please do not take off the same.
Please do not.
