By Shahriyer Hossain Shetu
Their eyes locked in a momentary glance, The first time they met was by mere chance. But neither could forget the other's face. ’Twas as if their souls had exchanged places. She grew restless and dissatisfied, For nothing in the world could provide The same joy that his presence brought. She yearned to know who he was, her thoughts distraught. "Who is he? Where has he gone? Appearing briefly, then withdrawn, Am I dreaming, or is this real? My heart aches, weakened by what I feel." He, too, was plagued by thoughts of her, His discipline and propriety a mere blur, As he longed for another fleeting sight, Of the girl on the balcony, his heart's delight. Their hearts beating in harmony, Drawn together by a mysterious symphony, They could not help but yearn for more, A thousand more times, they wished to explore. (Inspired by RK Narayan’s Ramayana, the scene where Sita and Rama see each other for the first time)
