Closer To The Sun

The colors fell slowly
on to the rusted Earth
for yet another day went by
with a mischievous smile

Lightly inhaling the incense of life, paused
took the safe exit, for it was worth the wait!

Alas! Wish every moment I'd be
a tender lullaby in your ears
a soft murmur beside you
a shadow that follows… Sigh!

Stirred from my sleep and you winked, Smiles
fell upon the darkness and you lit me up, literally!

With slightly trembling wings
like a new-born butterfly
rises from its cocoon, I
I started flying…

All I needed was just another unexpected eclipse
surviving the dreams, just to get closer to the Sun...
