Indranil Bhaduri (Kolkata, India)
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.
