A Moment Of Truth

At the beginning,
Light came across the Universe,
Forcing the shadow to the side!
Light and Shadow magically separated
In such a unique way
That Day and Night was created:
Days meant for thinkers
And nights for dreamers!
Harmoniously, Mother Nature
Came afloat in a fashionable way
Designed by a divine architect!

Time and Space
Became the root of our existence
When our first breath of life
Was echoed in this World!
Like a seed first planted,
Needing all the elements of nature,
To grow healthy and become a tree,
We, humans were created alike
But with a difference of a Mind and a Heart!
A Mind to think and be creative,
And a Heart to love one another
Within a peaceful atmosphere!
Life and Death,
Two sides of the same coin:
Precious moments spent
And now as memories remain
After a sudden departure!
