Never Forget Me - Poem by Kazi Nazrul Islam

You told me you'll never forget me,
how did you then manage to forget?

Someone says in the night's dream: earthly love does not last
Like a flower it blooms and then it is gone.

The craving helpless mind does not understand and gets entangled while rebuffed.
However far-away you may be, the memory of your songs still haunts the mind.

My eyes can see only when they are not filled with tears.

[Original: Bolechile bhulibe no more; Translation: Abu Rushd]
