Kranthi Pothineni

Breathing with memories

Time is playing with me…it says you will never be back.
Everyone is showering sympathy on me…as though it is true.
Sky is laughing at me…when I looked at it for hug.
Cold breeze is teasing me…to adopt its nature.
Dark clouds are asking me…to rest in its shade.
Even while this pain is killing me…I am still breathing with smile.
In the beauty of those memories…that you gifted me.

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
