The Same Shadow - Poem by shakil ahmed
The Same Shadow
When the gentle moon reigns in the sky
Alighting the dark world
With its fathomless light
Fond memory floats in my tired eyes
Like the wandering clouds of rainy season
Memories appear one after the other
Like the coaches of speeding train
I become nostalgic for sometime
Remembering my by-gone days
That was full of zest and colors
Like the sparkling rainbow of clear sky.
A familiar shadow
Appears slowly and silently in my vision
To steal my peaceful slumber.
The same shadow appears in the page
When I play with jumble of words
Often in the late part of night
Breaking the silence of by-gone years.
I have suffered defeats and set backs
Through the passage of months and years
But that can not swallow my strength and courage
I hid that shadow very deep in my heart
Out of fear of being robbed of my peace
But that shadow comes before my eyes
When in the knight dark owl cries.
