You are far from me, but
I find you so close always.
I know you understand that
You are incomplete without me.
To erase me from your memory
Is just impossible for you, but
I know, you consider it
Imperative to forget me.
Beautifully expressed! .. In such a powerful yet tender way! .. That touches the heart so! .. Definite 5 Stars! ..+++++
Thank you, Dr Nehal
So wonderfully written... thanks for sharing.
True love cannot be erased from memories..lovely lines of love
Hi Rini, This poem, as you would have noticed, is translation of a poem by Kavita Singh. She, like you, is a very talented poet. She writes mostly in Hindi. I liked the poems, and wanted to share them with those who donot read Hindi. Thus I tried the translation. If you read Hindi, you would notice that my translation is not good enough! ! ! And Thank you for reading and offering me this lovely comment...
I love translating myself (only French & Spanish) This is a very beautiful poem, deceptively simple.
And you may try some translations. But I read neither French nor Spanish. I have always wanted to learn to read at least Spanish, so that I could read Gabriel Garcia Marquez in original. I have read his English translations and wondered how beautiful the original would be! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! So I consider you as one of the luckiest, as you can read him in original.. I am jealous of you Tom! !
Hi Tom, I am really excited to know that you could read this beautiful poem of Ms Kavita, through my translation. I am the reason for that. It is really a great feeling... Thank you..
Poignant yet beautiful. Love is a rose with thorns. very well-articulated feelings of love that both pleases n hurts. A huge 10.
