A bit of smile for a while
And tears flowing down, for all the while

A bit of glee for all, at this moment
And grudging grief for a deadly next moment

A birth of bungling breathes after a long wait
And a death of innocence before, it’s even a bit late

“Life is like a highway”, said the God to me
“To learn walk, don’t we need time???”, still baffles me…

The lips didn’t get tired of smiling and talking then
The eyes will remain open in pain and will continue to rain

The flowerbeds of bliss, blessed yesterday
The demise day of deceased of today

The hopes, wishes of expectations all passed away
The elongated days and the never ending nights to come in the way

“It has to die, which takes birth” pronounced the God
“Before dieing, don’t we need a life, to live” still comes to my mind…

“ A life to live till you die”, is defined in all the rules of the God
“Don’t we need a span, to define a life time” will be my question, to the God…
