Where are you, my dear?

 

I am sitting by the side of the river

under the shade of that banyan tree,

Where I had spent hours everyday

and also you were there with me.


After a decade I am back in my village

leaving all cities and towns far behind,

I searched for you, my dear, everywhere,

but you are just nowhere to find.


The plant which you had planted here

and thought that it would not grow,

it's a huge tree now with full of leaves,

branches touching the water that are low.


Hills and the surrounds are same as before,

the river water sparkling in the Sun,

The shadows reflecting in the water

and gently moving and dancing with fun.


Gentle breeze is swaying the leaves,

the air is whispering in the ear,

Refreshing memories of the past,

Oh how much I miss you my dear !


Some birds have perched on trees,

some have just flown away,

Their twittering sounds so sweet,

With you here I would love to stay.


The flowers have bloomed now

on the river bank on each side,

Displaying their shapes and colours

to fill our eyes in great pride.


The entire sight is as enchanting

as you had seen before,

The beauty that prevails all around,

We cannot ask for more.


Nature is here still untouched

and that’s why all peace is here,

I would love to share its beauty with you,

Oh how much I miss you my dear !


Where are you at this point of time ?

Please come and sit with me ,

I feel so lonely without you, my dear,

Sitting under the banyan tree.
