Within by Tabassum Tahmina Shagufta Hussein

Tabassum Tahmina Shagufta Hussein | October 3rd, 2018 | poetry | No Comments


You were just there,
Hidden in the deepest core of my soul,
But I could not see you or I failed to see you.
I failed to realize that you were there,
Just inside me, just inside my heart.
I looked for you everywhere, my eyes became tired.
But I failed to look at inside my heart.
In my pain and pleasure,
In my hopes and disappointment,
In my love and passion,
You were just beside me,
But I didn’t look at you,
I didn’t go to you,
You were songs of my passion,
But in my ecstasy, I forgot you.
Your tune enthused my music,
Of love and pain.
But now I failed to sing your songs
I do not know how to sing your song now
You are not within me.
In silence, in solitude, I try to feel you.
I try to listen to your songs again and again
Alas! I fail and fail,
Because you are not within me,
My beloved.
