A Reason To Live!


The tenderness in your eyes-
When you behold me,
Gives me a reason to live-
In this deary world.
The warmth that flows in me-
When you embarace me,
Gives me a reason to live.
Even amidst the cold-hearted-
The smile on your lips,
when you console me,
Wipes away the tears drops,
The world has given me.
The encouragement you give me-
In times of despair;
Instils new strengths in me
In times of despair
To face all the troubles ahead.
The patience you show-
When i am angry,
Gives me the understanding,
To take everything in my stride.
The love shining in your eyes-
When we are together;
Gives me hope to live,
For wonderful tomorrows.
When you share my life-
And all my joys and sorrows
My reason to live,
Is the power of your love.

    Nobody gives you any reason.You to find yours to live.I did ask someone something like this.I was dismayed and distraught and then i disapproved myself of all these soft things for life.

    Your poems do a lot of impact on my past life.Thanks for sharing my memorabilia. (Report) Reply

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
