Best Poem of Rayhan Rhyne


When we forget the name of a 'ghat' left behind;

When a known face cannot be recalled at any attempts;

When I forget how many a time I take part in mourning processions;

When water dares to forget your smell;

When a recipient forgets who donated blood;

When a new sorrow remains unnamed;

When we fail to remember when the last time we happened to live in our bodies,
a snow-white hand keeps hanging from a withering grave.

(Translated from Bangla by Raihan Sharif)
