By Tabassum Tahmina Shagufta Hussein
Your dream resides in my tears.
Your dream lives silently,
Softly in solitude.
Do you know that?
My tears mirror you.
And I only see you in my tears
As a reflection.
How can I feel you?
Silently, he lives in my fathomless heart,
As a song and sings.
His songs echo in the walls of my heart.
Why are you far away?
Given me so many dreams
And left without an adieu.
Now, where I have kept those dreams?
In my dreams.
You are my tears now.
You are songs in my heart.
You are my dreams locked inside the heart.
Only you are not beside me.
Still, you are with me.
As my tears, dreams and songs in the heart.
