RAJ NANDY (CALCUTTA, NOW SETTLED IN NEW DELHI)
A TIME TRAVELLER
A TIME TRAVELER
I am a time traveler, traveling in space
Through my past, present and future, -
Leaving everything behind!
But when I travel to my past, time freezes up
in little frames,
As if it would forever last, though time never
remains the same!
I stop to view those picture frames of my
Those snapshots of congealed time, -
Of dream like mysteries!
I am a time traveler, when I project into
I do so with some trepidation, with my hopes
For should I get devoured by the vortex of those
My traveling will end, as I stand to disappear;
Without getting time, to shed a single tear!
I am a time traveler, impatient with my present,
As this present keeps slipping by, for which I
For like the true time traveler, I want to break
the shackles of time,
Traveling through blue infinity, where there
shall be no time!
Like a dedicated time traveler let me travel
with my soul,
Freed from past, present, and future tenses, -
traveling totally uncontrolled!
For then I shall become an eternal traveler,
Traveling beyond all space and time;
With nirvana for my soul, - shattering the
bondage of time!
