On This Day Poem by Pradip Chattopadhyay


My sweetest times were spent with them
They brought me here gave me a name
The only ones to be called my own
Now shadowy reflections in my moments alone!

His voice blurs faint as the years go by
Her face is a haze in the distant sky
I found from them an unmatched love
Living to this day in my treasure trove!

They gave me here a place to claim
Brought me here gave me a name
On this day of blessing and wish
I feel them within find a soothing peace.

    The melancholy air of a love as old as time and eternal as the sun runs through this piece. One is never truly human if one cannot love ones parents and ancestors. I love this poem. (Report) Reply
