Thou's leaving

Written by: Suhana Begum

I stand still
feet rooted to ground
that lays comfortably
under blanket of leaves...

Long strides take past thou
the row of pine trees;
Thick trunks swallowing thou
slowly out of my sight....

The sun starting to sink
along with heart inside;
Thy feet grazing fallen leaves
but mine too numb to feel...

Gramophone singing behind
gently tingling motionless waters;
But my ears only could hear
those last words left behind....

Cold breeze sweeping past
I gaze up at sky in remorse;
The clouds too heavy to carry
started to weep together with me....

All drenched in my story
which ended without a start;
But with that perplexing truth
carved in eyes of all......
