Hope against hope

(455)  Amar sedin hariye geche

Lost are those days of mine
When You remained by my side.
A mental garland I once offered
At the foot of love's altar.

In my garden, still they grin;
The jasmine and magnolia burgeon.
But You went somewhere far, far off;
Now flowers blossom all for naught.

Addicted to dawn's crimson color,
My pollen still does quiver.
Fresh pollen, it is falling down,
Lying neglected on the ground.

  1. A poignant and plaintive reverie expressing the pangs of separation.
