Leave

By Mitra Samal

Leave

If I ever have to leave this place,
I will carry with me a jar full of
soil, may be a few pebbles and
petals of some dried flowers,
A picture of the butterflies and
the deep blue sky, often with
scattered clouds,
A short audio clip of a humming
bee and the singing birds,
A painting of moon upon the
deep waters of the river.
I will take with me the memory of
its weary evenings and the appealing
sunrise of a beautiful morning.
I will carry its scent in my breath and
have love for it in my wistful smile.
I may leave this place for a while
but it will remain with me forever.
