Remembering You! - Poem by Neela Nath Das

Concluding the chapter
of happiness, if I'm asked
to reply the question- - - - -
Am I happy?
What shall I say
you know better.
Love me or not,
care me or not,
I'm happy or not,
just, just your thought,
once comes as a melodious
song, the lyric
is the same, hackneyed
stale, but the feeling is
very fresh as nature
to a poet's dreamy
eyes always.
Who cares what I write,
neither paper nor pen.
Does any sensitive mind,
have a desire to drown
in my lyrical heart?
She thinks me mad,
you say I translate,
they say, madness!
I know, I never did
translate but made
my imagination take
wings right from
my happiness, on
this mechanical page.
When I'm fatigued with my
everyday work,
and notice my child's smile,
I'm then happy.
I'm happier when I hide
my tired mind in your
lap to get your caress,
When I wrap me up
with your beats,
I'm then the happiest chap,
knowing you are star,
far, far away from me.
Then I make a stream,
of my thought
and flow it on and
I write a poem,
remembering you!
