The mountain between us


Herojit Philem

My family is the mountain
Between us
On the other side
Your virgin blooms.


Every night
Silently and secretly
I seekyou to play with me.

In the mountain
Two young tigers
Survive on my blood.

For them
I can sacrifice everything
But not you

You have given me
The taste of life
And when death pulls my hand
You will take me
Among the stars
So, tonight
I shall take you home.

The two tigers will know
The twinkling stars on the rooftop
Of my family
Is Yours.

Even if we cry
Together
We shall live
Happily
In the heart
of the Mountain’s Goddess.
