Light Breaks When Darkness Drops In - Poem by Ratan Bhattacharjee

Light breaks when darkness drops in
dropp by drop.
In the western sky
Love begins when the words of farewell
are uttered and you are not nigh
The waves dash to the seashore
to throw the sand
My heart begins beating
when you promise to take me to
the broad bright land.

Flowers bloom when the air stops blowing
and the petals slowly dropp from the buds
in silence
Old ships return when the new ones
sail out for new islands.

The angels keep their wings soaring high
When you love me and I feel shy.
