The Night We Departed


– By Monoswita Biswas

It was a full moon night,
A lovely night it was!
Enchanted by the gentle light of moon,
Slowly we walked;
As we walked a deep dark fear kept knocking loud,
If, tonight I lose her,
“Where should she be found?”
My dearest in the moonlit night looks like an angle bright,
Soft serene and sweet she is.
The moonlight fades,
Begins the morn:
A morn which brings new hopes in our hearts.
Departed shall we be,
No hopes do I have now
For she will love not me.
Today in this morn married shall she be;
With a heavy heart I bid good bye to her.
Departed, there never we met again;
Wished the night was long.

About the Author:

Monoswita Biswas acclaims herself to be an animal lover. Books have always been successful in filling the voids of her life. Being an English graduate, she sits down to pen her poems whenever possible. Writing is just not a mode of expression for her but an eternal redemption.


Sushmita firmly believes in her motto “Write like no one else will ever read you” and encourages the same to everyone.

Aspiring to create something brilliant and a prominent work of literature in the near future, she prioritises moulding style and emotions into words, at the same time, exalting thoughts and feelings above expressions.
