You never came





My eyes have lost their sleep in watching
Yet if I do not meet thee
Still it is sweet to watch ..

My heart sits in the shadow of the rains
Waiting for thy love
If she is deprived still it is sweet to hope

They walk away in different paths
Leaving me behind
If Im alone still it is sweet to listen to thy footsteps

The wistful face of the earth weaving its autumn mists
Wakens longing in my heart
If it is in vain, still it is sweet to feel the pain of longing....

-Tagore.

P.S: I wish you knew just how much it hurts when you do something like that.

Thanks! :)

@Shaunak,

indrablog said...

Nice poem. The present generation of Bengalis has almost forgotten the man. That day I found a collection of short stories by him - I want to buy that.

IcE MaiDeN said...

@IndraBlog,

Absolutely!!! The man was a sheer genius.. I read this poem when I was in school, 7th std, and it left an impression that very few poems have left till date.. I still have that book of poems..

But I do know one bengali who hasnt forgotten the man :) I dont know about the rest... :)

Cheers and welcome here!
Annie.
