The Photograph

By: Utsab Chowdhury


It’s the only thing
That I have of you
It’s the only wish that
I’d like to keep by you

So many years have passed
So many days have gone by
Your face reminds the same
Your smile, as time flows by

It’s the only memory of you
That I will ever keep
I will clench on to you
Every night before sleep

It’s only memory that will remain
Walking away, you never looked back
Tears rolled down, as you went
You never came, never turned back

It’s all I have of you
Only a fringed photograph
It’s all what I have
A fringed photograph

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.
