Away from your eyes

Atul Chandra Sarkar

When I am away from your eyes,
What do I remain?
Just a name, just a thought,
Just a print on the brain;
A name, which you may call,
As many times as you please,
Your voice shall awaken echo,
Echo too shall cease;
A thought, which shall raise,
Many a thought to their feet,
In vain, they shall loiter,
Down the vacant, mental street;
A print which shall picture me
Young, whether old or dead,
A print which shall not erase,
Until you are dead.
