To A Dead Woman: Buddhadeva Bose

‘I will never forget you.’ Such arrogant commitments
Are never forgiven by life. So, no false promises.
May your final freedom find its way along roads not yet
Imagined. Let the magic in your face merge with green leaves
And blend into the play of the seasons, in land and air,
Into the blue of the sky. Let me just keep these words lit
In my heartlight tonight – that you were there, still, you were there.
