Our shared dream

I have a single dream every night,
With you in it. In your favourite t-shirt,
You sleep in my dream and I ...
Gaze at you for hours together,
Drink the wine of ecstasy ;
Eyes closed, you resemble Adonis.

As you wake up, I put up the question -
"Why can't you be here ? With me, all the time"
You smile endearingly, and say -
"I am here with you. Don't you see me ?"
You seem like a fleeting dream.

Tears and smiles at the same moment,
You taught me to do this - "Love you forever",
I say and your embrace encompasses my world.
I hear from you "It is your turn next time".
I close my eyes imagining another rhapsody,
And I do not seem to find you again ...

I cannot remember my mother,
only sometime in the midst of my play
a tune seems to hover over my playthings,
the tune of some song that she used to
hum while rocking my cradle.

I cannot remember my mother
but when in the early autumn morning
the smell of the shiuli flowers floats in the air,
the scent of the morning service in the
temple comes to me as the scent of my mother.

I cannot remember my mother
only when from bedroom window
I send my eyes into the blue of the distant sky,
I feel that the stillness of my mother's gaze on my face
has spread all over the sky.

~Rabindranath Tagore
Note : This was one of  the earliest poems I read,loved and cherished.

You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
