[Poem] Bombay | Madhusmita Paul Mazumder
Bombay – Thy presence is a mirror to my dreams,
To visit thee, my heart screams!
Being one with thee, was all I needed,
Delays galore, by and by I succeeded.
Thy first sight came in a flourish,
Thy undying spirit is something I cherish.
The breeze from the sea, the buildings tall,
The presence of a special person was my pivotal call.
I cherished thy grandeur and spent days four,
I met my Angel Di, endearment inside my deepest core.
Days spent with thy bustle, holds a special meaning to me,
My heart belongs to thy waves, robust with glee.
Thy glitter and glory, Oh it gleams!
Bombay – Thy presence is a mirror to my dreams.
