PERHAPS~by Dipankar Sadhukhan




Why did you touch my mind and heart
With the fragrance of your love
If you want to go far away
From the valley of my heart and psyche?

Perhaps I might soar in the sky
Like an uncaged bird with joy
And bathe in the golden beams
Of the new born winter sun.

Perhaps I could sing a melody
Full of joy and harmony
And fill the earth’s eyes
With the tears of happiness.

You never came to my life
Like a sweet and happy dream.
Like a nightmare you haunted my life
At night or noon – every time.

Perhaps I might blow silently
Like the spring wind coming from the sea
And fill this earth with the fragrance
Of marigold and rose.

Like the shower in Summer
I might pour down the earth
And with the cool shower
I could relieve the pain of this scorched earth.
