They Leave At Dawn - Poem by Pradip Chattopadhyay

Two innocent eyes look up at me
Blue pleading watery eyes
I catch that moment on my cellphone
Before long they would be gone!

Come back cute fluff
I croon in each dark corner
Come back milk bright fur
Come back silk smooth caress
You can’t have gone too far!

Crescent moon hides you in shadow
Covers you the pale ashen star
Come back not wrench my heart
You can’t have gone too far!

Why the ones I love don’t stay long
Like you I carry on my cellphone
A few tunes and part composed song
Hushed into dusty yellow tone!

Why I can’t hold them back
The ones I love disappear at dawn
Go hide in the moon’s shadow
Leaving me bruised forlorn!

    Are you referring to a sweet pussy cat which has disappeared out of your sight after giving you a fleeting glimpse? I am eager to know what is that image that has fallen on your camera lens! Beautiful! ! (Report) Reply

    I'm not sure what you're referring to here - but it's something you love, and it always hurts when we lose what we love.
    I hope it returns to you. Sweet poem. (Report) Reply
