Best Poem of Buddhadeb Bosu

To A Dead Woman

''I will not forget'- -vows so arrogant
life does not forgive. So, let leave vain promises.
A fleeting spark you were, may your liberation spread along
unimagined pathways, the enchantment of your lovely face fade,

the oceans, the blue of the sky.
In this night, in the solitude of my heart I keep aflame
only these words- -You were here, once you were here.
