There, Where I Was - Poem by Golaka behari Acharya

Everything went
the rosy cheeks, kiss-crazy lips
the loins; ready to welcome you
yet I remain there, were I was
when all of these withered.

The whiteness of my bone
deepened, the weakness too
the backbone bent, rattle often
wrinkles grow
hair whitened, half of the ridge
of teeth went
the other half still help smiling
as I see the photo.Hey; I smile
as I remain there,
where I was.

I fail to forget
those events happened to me
I remained inside to
remember you; not to allow
death peep into
either to touch you or me
as I remain there
where I was.
