Adieu To Tears! ! ! - Poem by Debasish Mishra

Don't allow that precious dropp to cling in your cheeks,
It lessens your beauty, I swear,
You look so beautiful
With that inexpensive ornament of a smile...
Why don't you simply try, yourself, in front of the mirror?
You will mark the difference...

By the way.....
Why do you waste the jewels of the eye
For the people who hurt you?
Please ask yourself-
Do they deserve that?

Frankly, my heart crumbles
Like a monument made in sands...
When I see your wilted countenance,
Your watery eyes, your glistening cheeks!

Please promise me
That you won't waste those gems
For petty issues.
The drops look so beautiful when you keep them hidden
Amid the deep ocean of your eyes...
Won't you hear my little request? ? ?
