From the bud........


I looked through the petal side
Saw a stream of bright light
Lashes of my eye blinked with delight
A splash of smile, my lips went wide
Yeah! I will get up tomorrow....

Dreams of my few day life
Filled me with great pleasure
But reminded me of the short time
How can I find joy per gesture?
Anyway! I will get up tomorrow

The sleepless night I had to bear
Bound with hope and haunt with fear
It ne'er want the fate of a burning candle
Grace of a dew under dawn, it love to handle
Hurrah! Its time to get up!

Petals beside lean behind
So slow, I opened my eyes
Straight to me, lie the pond
Side to me, flowers of ages
Looked, smiled and greeted me.

Dawn and dusk passed by
Beauty of nature, I relished with
Came to me, the purple butterfly
I longed to have a chat with
The haughty friend, it never minded!

A boy longed to pluck me once
Hearing my yell, it stopped thence
Dismayed, he then went away.
Petals beside, shaking were they
My time is up, I realized then!

My beats lowered, my eyes filled
I never want to die petal by petal
It seems rather more painful
Let someone pluck me, I wished
The old and weak, who needs?

The setting sun looked with pity
Came the boy and looked at me
Hearing my cry, pluck out me
The momentary pain, so hard to bear
Though it was so, I felt glad.

The boy went to his dear friend
gave me to her, she then smiled
My life is shining, end was it though
It's graced, being conveyor of love
But I wonder? , why it chose this old unfair?
