By Tabassum Tahmina Shagufta Hussein


I have just written your name in my luminous moon like heart 

With the colour of vermilion red. 

That you belong to me. 

Let the world know that you are mine. 

I see you while my eyes closed in the darkness. 

As if you come from heavenly world,

A demi God, your black hair reminds me of dark night without moonless sky, 

Your blue eyes gives me the imagery of boundless blue ocean. 

I keep drowning in the dreams, 

And remain with you in the dreams. 

Be a Human, listen to my heart ‘s yearning, 

Call me by a name in your own words. 

I shall be running at you when you call me by my name in your own words. 

And I shall be keep coming back to you again, and again. 

Why I have found you, only you, 

In this life time. 

My heart desires to have you, 

In many more lives. 

In the world of love where both life and death dwell, 

We shall be each others. 

I belong to you, 

As you belong to me. 


Tabassum Tahmina Shagufta Hussein is a poet from Dhaka, Bangladesh
