From Your Valentine..... - Poem by Neela Nath Das

Dearest Julia,
Tomorrow, when you will be reading this letter, I won't stay in this world.The execution will be completed. The Roman Emperor Claudius' court accused me as I performed wedding for the Roman soldiers as Priest.Yes, I did it. I'm successful in joining two special hearts. In the Empire of Claudius-ii, it is forbidden. It's a crime! Julia, in the mild light of the earthen lamp, I'm writing this….But, the light within which you have kindled in me is burning with thousand flames.Nothing can put them out, not even your father, the jailor Asterius can do it! You know, I designed leather hearts for the Roman Soldiers! I can vividly see, your broad eyes which are passing the words of my letter are now full of tears.Before, my departure from this Earth, I do not have any grief. You are no more blind now. Your love is with me. In my days of imprisonment you conveyed the fresh air of the purest world.I'm blessed Julia.
Don't shed your precious drops of tear.I'll stay in the heart of Everyman.'
I wanted to teach every heart to love.The light of love will be with you!
With parting kisses
Adieu! Adieu!
Your Valentine
13th February…….

    The letter drafted with poignancy of feeling can evoke tears, not only in the eyes of Julia, but in very many eyes! ! Great job! ! (Report) Reply
