Deny To Be Sad - Poem by Malabika Ray Choudhury

No, I am not going to be sad,

Although the conversation yesterday made me sad,

Remembered things, and knew they could have been done differently.

Still I refuse to be sad!



Why can't we go back?

Why can't we make things right?

Write something on a piece of paper,

I can erase it,

Why some mistakes can't be erased,

Although they haunt you for the rest of your life!



There was a time when I saw your face, heard your voice,

And my heart just turned into an oasis

of laughter, and glee, and exuberance, and pure delight,

Turning every day a day worth living,

Life worth living a thousand years!

Every day was a dream - the kind of dreams

which never ends.



Today an alright morning,

Snow has melted, almost gone,

Last snow, hopefully.



Let April showers bring flowers to my garden,

Let sun take away the last bit of sadness

In life, in the air, in the  ground.

Mistakes are part of life, mistakes are inevitable,

mistakes teach us how fragile our life is!

We will rise, like the little Tulips wake from their slumber,

To turn the world heavenly,

We will be strong, we will be hopeful,

Mistakes can not take away everything.

The morning is slowly turning brighter,

Sun will bring bliss,

Everything will look different!
