Smiles to give before I weep
Who caused these wounds I think I know.
His memory lives in my heart though;
He will not know I am thinking about him
To feel his wounds fill my heart and grow.
My little mind must think it queer
To think about him without him being near
And feeling the wounds and the frozen heart
The darkest evening of the year.
The mind gives heart a little shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the weep
Of shattered heart and broken dreams .
The wounds are painful, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And smiles to give before I weep,
And smiles to give before I weep.
(Adapted from – Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening By Robert Frost)
A young boy looks at the blind man
Who’s trying to cross the road if he can
Blind man is tense and scared
As the cars speed by and their horns blared
Boy approached the man and said
I’ll help you out old man, don’t you dread
The traffic on the road right now is heavy
But don’t you worry
Together we’ll cross the road and you’ll be on your way safely
The blind man feels relieved and smiled
Thanks the god for this caring child
The boy grabs the man’s hand
And together they start to cross the road
As they reach the middle he saw
His sweetheart who’s looking frantically for him, deep in her thought
In his excitement he leaves the blind man and ran
To his girlfriend who’s waiting for him as per their plan
The blind man suddenly notices the absence
Of the young boy, and begins to feel tense
Worried about the speeding cars
He stumbles as he senses them coming to him speeding from afar
But then something in him gives him confidence
To cross the road, he trusts his instincts and god’s providence
So what if the young boy has left him mid way
He has his learning, instinct and god’s support to find his own way …
