Words

Posted on Updated on


She looked into his eyes
But couldn’t express the feelings that she had deep inside
Her life was going on just fine
Till he casually looked at her and smiled

She meant to tell him how much he mattered in her life
But she could not find the right words that would express her emotions just right
As he walked away from her sight, her heart cried –
My words will never mean anything to you, as much as I try
Yours, on the other hand, give meaning to my life

Joker

The child looked at him and smiled
The bright smile, the twinkle in her eyes
Everything about her made him cry

He smiled back and carried on with his work
As he fumbled and stumbled, visibly disturbed
He tried again and down he fell
And she laughed hysterically, her face turned red

But there was something in her laugh that made him cry
For this child was suffering from a deadly disease inside
Thinking of that his throat went dry
God only knows how long she’ll live and when she’ll die
But he was a joker and it his job to make her smile
Make as many moments enjoyable before she dies…

Joy and Sorrow

Joy and Sorrow

The boy prayed to the lord night and day
A priest had told him that if he prayed hard, god may
Give him a life that was without any sorrow
And the priest’s word he keenly followed

He prayed all night and he prayed all day
He stopped all work and for days he prayed
Finally the god emerged and said
If life without sorrow is what you desire
Then let me give you what you aspire

He was indeed overjoyed
He thanked the priest and he jumped in joy
After that he never felt any pain
He never experienced sadness again

But soon he started missing the pain and sorrow
Without which his life was totally hollow
The happiness and the joy that he wanted so much
Was totally incomplete in absence of pain as such
This was, for the poor chap, a bitter pill to swallow
The one who wanted happiness went mad searching for elusive pain & sorrow…
