How Long Is Life - Poem by Pradip Chattopadhyay

A stupid question
With the answers


It’s that long
What it takes
To unearth
All the love
Begot on earth
For you

It’s that long
What it takes
To travel the way
To know
You got more joy in giving
Than receiving

It’s that long
What it takes
To close your mouth
And wait in patience
To listen what’s uttered
In the silence

It’s that long
What it takes
To reach the point
Where you feel fulfilled
Without a visible gain
In your coffer

It’s only not that long
That you live

In years
