‘An Unwritten Song’ by Sonam Dema

A thousand stars

A lone moon

A lonely boy

And I, a night-sky.


A thousand promises

A love song

A paper lover

And I, a perpetual dreamer.


A thousand voyages

A waning solace

A passing sailor

And I, a winding river


A thousand memories

A soothing melody

A forgotten voice

And I, an unwritten song.
