#82 Just a Sunny Day

I have become a ghost, just to see you,
I’ll visit the past, the days that have been spend,
From the end of Summer till the end of faint light.

Even without saying, hairs would turn grey,
Stuck in this apartment world.
Will anyone care?

I only know one thing,
The sky I look up to is blue –
And the clouds far away.

So, you see, things are alright now.
Now at night I only sleep.
I wonder what I’ll do when I wake up!

I only know that, I have lived,
I am a few years older than I was then,
I have lost a lot, but the beach is far away.

Why was I walking?
Even if I forget one day,
I’ll still be in the shadows.

The sky is beautiful, after a long day,
Now I can sit with my legs crossed,
The sun will also set soon.

Do you know,
I have lived a long time?
But I am just 25.

#79 Forgive yourself

A moment! A moment please!
Look around you, so many things
Don’t give up please, don’t crumble
I am there, I know how you feel.

Even if you are left broken
You still have your wings,
You will heal, you can fly again.
Don’t give up on yourself.

The cold room, the stranger blanket
Can’t hide the scars you carry
Come out please, don’t shut the door
You have to walk away from the sorrows.

All that pain needs separation
But you need not leave,
Just hold on a while longer
There will be light at the end of the tunnel.

Colour yourself in pride
One step is all it takes to heal
To accept what happened, is not your fault,
A smile, a cup of coffee in your favourite seat,
One familiar TV show and time for yourself.

#78 Holding On

Universe is spread to infinity
Travel beyond the stars
Be in the company of stardusts
Happiness will come where you are.

Time is limited
A flower dies in a day
Think about the time you are living
Count memories and take steps.

Pain will keep you company
Worry is a misuse of imagination
Remove them both in a single step
Lose yourself to your destiny.

There was a time when survival was the hardest,
Now being happy is, just to live.

#72 Beggar

Clouds fly by, too fast to catch
Where are you? It’s getting dark already.

The road just winds once at the corner
I cannot see any farther away than that.

Wind blows in some news
There’s so many new things happening.

I heard things are good for you.
You have taken chances and it felt nice.

These monologues play in my heart
Nothing ever comes out of them, just my hair fall.

This turned out the way you wished
I let it happen, I had no intention to stop.

There’s no trail, no story left behind
In one day all feelings were replaced.

Through the windows of the moving car
Everything moves back that you left behind.

There’s one home half broken,
Standing, waiting, for your arrival even if once.

I am your fool even when the clock stops
Although there’s no more glasses to pour and drink.

#55 If You Tell Me Where

Who you are? Who you are?

Will I find it out this time?

I look for the obvious to happen
But we walk past, we never met,
How can we be so lost here, You and I.

The endless rain or not seeing you
I do not know which one hurts more,
Which one makes me feel more lonely! 

I know you stand there and look,
Why don’t you try to speak?
I wait for just one time.

If things were not so far,
If time was on our side,
We would have somewhere met, You and I.

The regrets of given away chances,
The puzzle pieces that did not fit,
It’s all meaningless, only to grief.

When you were in my place
Do you have those memories?
All breath gone,we sit apart, You and I.

Where can I find you?
In the moonlight your shadow is lost.

#53 Childish lines for she is leaving 

When I sit alone,
The lights dim out
Memories float by
The mist still makes me cry.

It has been so long
Your flight left
A new world called
I kept waiting.

Have you ever thought
I am still,
There, somewhere,
In the pain of separation.

Last wish to see
Baby, forever goodbye
You chose the right thing
At the cost of one last kiss.

#50 লিলুয়া বাতাস 

এক যে ছিল সে বসে, একা
চোখ ফিরিয়ে নিও না,
হাত ধরবে কি তার সূর্যাস্তের সময়?

দিন নেই রাত নেই
বসে বসে সে ভাবে পাবে কি তোমায়
পাগল সে তোমার তরে এখনও।

মায়া কাড়ে সব
জীবনের খোলস থাকে শুধু
ভেসে চলে আঁধারের যাত্রী কোন অজানায়!

তোমার ছবি থাকে তার মনে
ছায়ার ওপর ছায়া পড়ে অস্তিত্বের আড়ালে
কখনো কি ভেবেছ এই আকাশ শেষ কোথায়?

দূরে সরে যেতে যেতে
কাছেও আসা যায়
যদি মন চায়, কোনো এক সীমানায়!

আকাশ বাতাসে আশা গড়া
শহর প্রান্তর থেকে বেরিয়ে,
পৃথিবী ছেড়ে কোথায় লুকোতে?

চোখের পাতায় ছুয়ে দিলে
কাটেনি বিস্ময়
এ যে এক স্বপ্ন সত্যি হবার গল্প।

তারার আলোয় হারাবে তাকে
যেখানে ফেলে আসা,
সাগর পারে পায়ের ছাপের ভিড়ে।

শুকনো ফুল ঝরবে যখন
বুকের ভেতর জ্বলবে আগুন
সে শুধু তোমার অপেক্ষায়।

স্মৃতির সাথে মিশে যায় জীবন
দুফোঁটা জল আজ আর আসেনা
মেঘ শুধু আসে আর যায়, বৃষ্টি আনেনা।

সে বসে থাকে,
একা পথে খুঁজে ফেরা পুরোনো দিন
লিলুয়া বাতাস, মন পড়ে থাকে সেথায়।
