The Day You Decided To Go – - Poem by Rafiqul Anowar

I know why you are upset;
Alone on this grey sand shore
Sitting;
The waves of silent sea, numberless
And the evening, while
Red eye sun spreads upon the painted sky.
You are not thinking
of me, I know my love.
You are crying -
Even the mountain river
will not hear your sigh;
You will walk
Beside the forest, no tree or bird
will come to meet you, again
The color of green will
Miss your dance
Over the twinkling ground
after the heavy rain. And
the big melancholic cloud will go around
to shadow over you
They will tell nothing but feel -
Something you decided
Some how, you will leave all these
Songs of life
Where you born, you played
and learned first to love me.
I am no one
from a no where of fairy land
Unlike the prince,
I came to your door with an empty hand.
You walked with me,
And taught me how to love
You talked to me,
and told me what is love.
I walked and talked but
Couldn't win your heart
at the end.
Now, your heart is bleeding
feel no sunshine on your shoulder
No warmness in your lips,
But you will leave, forever
My heart and my love
I know you will not miss me
Never will feel anything,
but you will miss the whole spring breeze,
the autumn blue sky
under the Flamboyant Tree;
You will remember yourself
Only, the one
Desired to fly over the cuckoo's nest;
For a while or forever.
