The Night Train of Nagaur

How to tell you,

What is more painful than a blast in the ear,

More painful than a suppressed tear,

More painful than the whistle of a train,I hear;

How to tell you,

Nothing is more painful than your leave,

Feigning that without you I can live;

How to tell you,

What is a beloved without the lover,

Or a lover without the beloved,

Or me without you, or you without me;

How to tell you,

What is the sky without a moon,

Or a moon without the sky,

Or me without you, or you without me.

    1. Thank you so much 😊 I am glad I have conveyed to you specially and to my readers the intense emotions of a village woman who sees her husband off at the railway station after a brief encounter.
      The plight of the villagers in India ,who have to leave their families behind, and to go for work in the big industrialized cities,pains me personally.
      I am glad you read the poem and you like the picture of the passenger train of Nagaur in India.
      Thank you once more.
