Song for Inamorato by Jagari Mukherjee
For Inam Hussain Begg Mullick
I heard the moon's hymns last night
by the light of a candle; a paper kite
flew past. When the last flame softly died
I longed for you by my side.
When I am alone and you are far,
I search the stars that swim the psalms
of the sky for glimpses of your love.
I dream of your shades and tone,
my being collapses in your arms—
I merge with all gods above.
From Letters to Inamorato
