Poem by Rajashree Mohapatra
A love song …
Valentine’s day this poem
O love !
Stay near me a while longer,
Before we part let us float together Hold eachother close
And take in the breath of emptiness.
Forget the wisps of delicate fear that stalk us,
Forget the sweet tear of trysts gone sour,
Our hearts sing, why must we stiffle what is so dear ?
Our song of love
Clear as crystal, triumphant,
No tumult in there, so strum the tune of eternity on the lyre!
Sing the song never sung before !
Our journey is brief, the ride is hard, yet we must go
The cherished land of love awaits Forgive me Dear if I hurt you ever,
Leave what must lie unresolved
We have no time from past, only a time in future !
