Dreams - Poem by Malabika Ray Choudhury

If my life is like a river, not all pebbles are shiny;

If my life is like a flower, not all petals are smooth;

There are pebbles, there are petals,

Covered with dreams,

So soft, almost like an angel

Touching them,

Caring them.

Let them be where they are -

Unharmed,

Because dreams are not to be shattered!

Topic(s) of this poem: dreams, hope, life
