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.
