Bitter- Sweet Symphony Called Life - Poem by Ravi Singh

I saw pearly droplets of tears
Trickling through her green eyes
Who could cause such a pain to her?
To me this logic simply defies

I could take notice and relate
To her fitful weeping spurt
As I myself was so painfully
Going through a hurt

Wished I could comfort her
And for few moments become her friend
I knew her heart needed
Warmth of a supporting hand

Is it parents, or siblings, or a close friend?
Or is it her lover? Who has caused her this anguish
Although they are among the first
To give her their best and unconditional wish

People who mean all the good to us
And important part of our life
Are the people who are most likely
Cause of our hearts misery and strife

Such is the bitter – sweet symphony called life
With each hurt, we get an experience brand new
I am learning this hard way, and
I am sure she has begun her learning too
