“പ്രിയപ്പെട്ട സാറാമ്മേ,
ജീവിതം യൗവനതീക്ഷ്ണവും ഹൃദയം പ്രേമസുരഭിലവുമായിരിക്കുന്ന ഈ അസുലഭകാലഘട്ടത്തെ എന്‍റെ പ്രിയ സുഹൃത്ത്‌ എങ്ങനെ വിനിയോഗിക്കുന്നു?
ഞാനാണെങ്കില്‍...... എന്‍റെ ജീവിതത്തിലെ നിമിഷങ്ങളോരോന്നും സാറാമ്മയോടുള്ള പ്രേമത്തില്‍ കഴിയുകയാണ് . സാറാമ്മയോ? ഗാഢമായി ചിന്തിച്ച് മധുരോദാരമായ ഒരു മറുപടിയില്‍ എന്നെ അനുഗ്രഹിക്കണമെന്ന് അഭ്യര്‍ത്ഥിച്ചുകൊണ്ട് .
സാറാമ്മയുടെ
കേശവന്‍ നായര്‍”
Vaikom Muhammad Basheer, പ്രേമലേഖനം | Premalekhanam

“ആ പൂവ് നീയെന്തു ചെയ്തു?..........?
ഏതുപൂവ് ?..
രക്ത നക്ഷത്രം പോലെ
കടും ചെമാപ്പായ ആ പൂവ് ?
ഓ അതോ ?
അതെ, അതെന്ത് ചെയ്തു..?
തിടുക്കപ്പെട്ടു അന്വേഷിക്കുന്നതെന്തിനു ?
ചവിട്ടി അരച്ചുകളഞ്ഞോ എന്നറിയാന്‍?
കളഞ്ഞെങ്കിലെന്ത്?
ഓ ഒന്നുമില്ല,

എന്റെ ഹൃദയമായിരുന്നു അത്.....!”
Vaikom Muhammad Basheer

“എടീ! മധുരസുരഭില നിലാവെളിച്ചമേ”
