SEEKING YOU

SEEKING YOU ।। Paromita Manna

Where have you been?
When the heart wept not knowing why,
When the innumerable nights passed by
counting the stars,
And only Heaven witnessed a forlorn soul
with bareness all around.
Sleeping in the arms of the night
I sought someone with heavy sighs,
My saviour who would be and
bless me with salvation.
Alas! Darkness of the night
shrouded me and
nowhere could I find
A pair of eyes,
That would see deep inside me
and share the burden
of my untold grief,
That dwelt inside me
since times immemorial.
None do I look for on this earth now,
Rather strive to find solace
In the desolation that follows me
like a shadow,
And rejoice in treading
the path of life,
With none by my side.
