If Only Life Was Like That - Poem by Shyamal R Swamy
You could smile at the wind caressing
Than worry about hurricanes coming
Roses bloomed for lovers
Without spiteful prickles
A smile meant just delight
Not a mask for tears to fight
A kiss meant just trust
Not sodden with bloody lust
'I love you' had no complications
And a million obligations
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
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'
