Treasure Island

Indranil Bhaduri

(Kolkata, India)

Tears


The dazzling sunlight kindled my cheeks
As I traversed through the meandering streets
With a delighted self
Coveting to meet her again
With those romantic feelings
To heartily express.
I dreamt of her sweet face
With her waving silky hair
Enshrouding my vivid colourful soul.
With the hues of love all around,
The magical flowers bloomed
The quivering lips uttered
Soft whispers of belonging,
The deep eyes reached my inner self
As I stepped in front
Of the silent grave.
A tiny droplet of water touched my arm
And depicted my deep passion
With the crumbled petals of rose
Lying in my palm
That was never given ever,
Till she walked away,
To cross the doors of paradise
Leaving a solitary soul with moist eyes,
Longing forever to view
Her picturesque smile,
And dropping a lover's tears
To reach heaven.

    Hi Indranil,

    a very loving poem about the frailties of life itself, we will all live and ultimately die but it's what's in between that sustains us throughout our lives along with the many memories we have to cherish.
    Life and death are what make us who we are as they are the ultimate experiences we come across daily, they show up our strengths as well as our weaknesses.
    If you have faith in your God you need never fear lifes trials and tribulations.
    Good Luck and God Bless.
