How Far Is Mexico

How far is Mexico?
An expert of Geography says, 'Thousand miles.'

How long does one need to reach Mexico?
A boatman says, 'Months after months.'
A pilot says, 'At least half a day.'

When I say to them,
'I reach there within few seconds every day',
they all get astonished,
'How is it possible? '

I say, 'There are many things strange
which happen in case of love.
I am the poor Orpheus of Bangladesh.
My Eurydice Lorena lives in Mexico.
Every moment I visit her, she visits me.
We need not have any boat or any aircraft.
Our love is our Borrak* which explores earth and the sky
faster than the speed of light.'

They cannot understand my words.

* a miraculous vehicle which carried Prophet Mohammed (Sm) to the throne of Allah crossing seven skies within moments.
