A Life Saved - Poem by lalitha iyer

A life saved
is to give the bereaved
a form to clothe
to talk to and hug
and feel and fondle
have something to care
and share craving near

A heart saved
is to save the faith
faith in creation's breathe
to simply seed the truth
of love and life
in smiles and songs

An urge is implanted
that the life is worth planted
that it is good to wake up
and living is really start up
that when trust is gone
and love is raped
when human life is lost
with all values steadily cost

why save lives
without any song in the lips
and hope in the looks
but to feed and fend
the drab dirty rounds
