Adieu Tilottama


As, I flow along the sticky banks of life…
Memories try to cling on to me…
But, the only one I remember
Is the only one who never asked...

And, as I drink tea
In this deserted station…
I think of you
And all that will stay behind…

All I remember…
Is the music that was never played.
Irony, it is that I find your soul
In this moment of departure

Yet, I treasure it as my identity
As, perhaps you will remember me
Like the millions who left before me
Silent soul mate of my firsts…adieu Tilottama.

First of all good luck to your new life ahead.. A life that began here and shall flourish in the Capital Of the country... Wish You All The Best....

Secondly the heart felt comments were really nice.. Loved them... But one thingy is that I love the fact that I am a bengali.. and also the fact that bengal has learned to move on.. keeping its heritage in tact , it has now begun to add an aristrocatic touch.. which makes it all the more special..

The poems were actually for a play.. "BANGLAR SANKOSKRITIK SONKOT" and so I had to bias my views a little... making something extremely postive a little dark..

And please be criticall.. its appreciated for then i know that It is honest.. not for the sake of comments...

Shine On Forever !!!!
