Poem By Asit Kumar Sanyal
I moved ahead about four decades
From my childhood love
I could not forget a single moment
And live like a loving dove.
The memories settled in my mind
To preserve and to say
Its look like fresh and green
Just happened yesterday.
I remember that particular moment
When I touched her finger
And when she offered me at her home
A glass of lime water.
When I close my eyes and look back
I can see my first kissing
It was behind the temple of Shiva
Where the light was missing.
Our hairs are now black and white
Living on each other's support
Children are staying out of reach
Moving forward on medical report.
The days have gone decades ago
Memories left to ruminate and rub
Wrinkles appeared on the sun-burn skin
But still enjoy the childhood love.
