i close my eyes

i close my eyes,
and think about the places
i have not been to,
the lakes,
the mountains,
the hills,
the beaches

i close my eyes,
and think about the places,
i have not been to,
the lakes,
the mountains,
the hills,
the beaches

tanzim, i think of you
and how we seldom talk to
each other, about each other –
sometimes we do, sometimes i do
tell about you
to others

and,let my eyes be a little
moist, at late night
hours, long past when
the dinner is over and
maa is asleep

i know she listens to me
and is not really asleep,
but i still talk about you,
tanzim and i tell my friend,
about things you like,
about your old red sweater
and toys you like,

and we cry
together, while watching the
stars, and smile a little

telling each other,
to dream a little,

tanzim, will you dream
with us too a little, tonight?
