//Dreams Unfulfilled Forever// That is not impossible, when Our life is cheaper than a rat, or a cat When killings become a culture. Yet some deaths haunt our conscience Cost a great deal from us As the Death of our Father did. The beauty of a drop of dew on a grass leaf The smiles of a shapla on a lake water The whistles of a doel sitting on a wall Were all more charming to you than The charms of a General’s badge. You wanted to find a meaning of your life In a madly pursuit, few could understood. The dream to showcase your motherland beyond Remained beyond, unfulfilled forever. Come down on wings of angels Pass some time with seagulls at Teknaf Become a scholar gypsy, avoiding us enough.
