तुला मला ही जाणीव नसता
अशी अचानक गाठ पडावी
अन दडलेली रात्र मनातिल
चांदण्यात निखळता बुडावी

जपला तरीही उडून जावा
पाऱ्याचा क्षण क्षणभर खळबळ
आणी लवावी शांत पापणी
हलके स्पर्शित काळे वर्तुळ

तुला मला ही जाणीव नसता
उडून मनातिल रानकबूतर 
प्रश्नांच्या डोहात शिरावे
शोधाया दडलेले उत्तर

तुला मला ही जाणीव नसता
अशी अचानक गाठ पडावी …

- कवी 'बी'

I heard the first two lines of this beautiful poem from Kunal when he was reminiscing about one of their performances almost 12 years ago at Kalyani, the intercollegiate musical competition in Pune. I was so taken by the lines, that I wanted to know the entire poem and luckily for me, Kunal remembered it. He and I don't know if he remembers it accurately - I wrote it down as he recited it, and must have read it multiple times since then. It reminds me of this quote:
"In your life, you meet people. Some you never think about again. Some, you wonder what happened to them. There are some that you wonder if they ever think about you. And then there are some you wish you never had to think about again. But you do." 
~ C. S. Lewis
