Light - Poem by Prayag Saikia

I had been in your body
I had been in your shadow
Said Khalil Gibran
I am the offspring of longing of life
I have come through you
This thought came once
You gave me affection
Told the thought waves to be yours
Made me aware that
My future home
Would be unfamiliar for you
Is it true
The doubtful mind
Asks repeatedly
You're the first audience
Of my waves of thoughts
The flame of thought burns
In your assurance
Let a thousand storms lash
On the bridge between you and I
On the path of your departure
The flame of Ahura Mazda burns
I behold you
In the light
Only through the light

(Translated from original Assamese by Bibekananda Choudhury)
