If Only Life Was Like That - Poem by Shyamal R Swamy

If only,
You could smile at the wind caressing
Than worry about hurricanes coming

If only,
Roses bloomed for lovers
Without spiteful prickles

If only,
A smile meant just delight
Not a mask for tears to fight

If only,
A kiss meant just trust
Not sodden with bloody lust

If only,
'I love you' had no complications
And a million obligations

If only,
I could still be a child.
So gentle. So mild.

Oh! If only,
The world reflected my mind
And life was just that kind

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Growing up...
Realizing many things....
Not liking it..

Inspired by my own quote - 'If only life was as simple as smiling at the wind blowing in your face than worrying about a storm coming'
