Words Untold Poem by Unnikrishnan Sivasankara Menon

Words Untold

Rating: 5.0

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.

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! !
