The Key

Your beloved key you lost
Is still lying with me
Now how do you open your box?

Is the birth-mark on your chin still there?
I ask myself, my heart
Would you go to a place
New and fresh?
Suddenly I felt like writing to you -

I kept your key with a lot of care,
Today I found some time '
Write if you want it back.

Mixed with meaningless memories
Still your face is there
Sparkling with tears
Write if you want it back.

Translation of the poem Chabi by the modern Bengali poet Sakti Chattopadhyay.
