TELL ME, THE SECRET


I wanted to ask you
Even when in turmoil
Of your life
And all doors closed
That tomorrow’s tunnel
Seemed to have no light
I wanted to ask you
Why did you still smile


I wanted to ask you
When your dreams
Have no glimmer of hope
When your efforts
Are just a drop
In the ocean
But still you go extra mile
I wanted to ask you
Why did you still smile


I wanted to ask you
Why you were so quite
And never hit back
Even when the chance
To put down your enemy
Was there for you
I wanted to ask you
Why did you still smile


I wanted to ask you
Is it that you had no tears
For I never saw them flowing
Is it that you knew no anger
For I never saw you annoyed
Even when your life was cloudy
And you couldn’t see yonder
I wanted to ask you
Why did you still smile

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
