GUESS

GUESS 

I guess you have left too far
Leaving behind a coffin of my memories
Which were soaked in your blood for a long period
For me to take it to the graveyard
And entomb it beneath the ground

But I will keep your memories alive in me
Because I want to live with them
My tears will keep moisture preserved in them
For their roots to sprout deeper in my feelings

Whether it will be an autumn or spring
Winter or summer
I will keep writing the songs inspired by them
To gift them to the nightingale
For it to sing at the time of every dusk
To keep you alive in me

For those left in the grave
I will keep an epitaph standing
With some words engraved on it
Waiting for the day to come
When you will pass nearby 
So that you will come to know what is buried inside
May it happen at the time of dusk
For you to listen to the songs of that nightingale
Sitting nearby on a branch of my garden
And you will come to know
How I kept your memories alive in me
And how you left my memories dead in you
Buried inside the grave beside you
