Why


His sweats a salty syrup
He muttered time is up
And crashed with a mighty splash!

For the fraction airborne
Did he once mourn
His life passing in a flash?

    How many talented violinists never pick up a violin?

    How many dreams never begin?

    Until the final one creeps in?

    A lovely poem Pradip :) (Report) Reply
