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
