Victoria, The Empress of India

chakky's picture

Victoria, here I stand ,
Alone in a foreign land,
Neither the tongue I know,

Victoria Memorial: The Queen Victoria Memorial at Calcutta.. Victoria Memorial: The Queen Victoria Memorial at Calcutta..
Neither the place or people,
Tranversing this city of urs all alone,
A loneliness creeps within me...

As I see the couples throng your memorial,
As I wade through the acres all alone,
Admiring thy residence...
Its a different realization,
Since it does not make me feel negative,
It only makes me feel incognito,
What life I lived..
For sometime I was the world to many,
For now I am just a tiny speck in their lives..

The couples throng this memorial: Couples throng the memorial..The couples throng this memorial: Couples throng the memorial..
I am today what I was long time back,
I am today what I never wanted to be,
I am today back to my incognito self,
For what I toil my mind questions,
For what I thirst my heart asks,
For what will set me free my body asks,
All three of them tortured to their hilt,
I hear the queaks, I hear the leaks, I feel the tears,
But there is nothing to weep,
For life is perfect today,
Nothing complicates it,
Nothing values it,
The route to take,
The heart to awake,
My mind knows not....

As I stand in this grandeur of urs,
Oh empress, I see how lonely u stand,
Among these couples,
hundreds thronging under
the trees of your garden
I see what u see,
I feel what ur lonliness,
Separated by thousands
From your heart, u stand alone..
