Longing - Poem by DEEPAK KUMAR PATTANAYAK

Longing
- - - - - - -
Do you feel?
What I feel
See how he comes
Comes with silent steps
And goes stirring
So much emotion in us
Nor you can see him
Nor you can hear
Though a lot he speaks
And a lot he sings
Come under his spell all
Only you can feel
Him moving forward
In a second some
Thousand years
Will have passed
And I long more
More of you my dear
Till he feels poorer
And humbly says no
To expend more
In my favour
From his rich treasure
Lest sun grows dim
Moon trims her dreams
And stars'fall
Imminent it may seem...

    Meaning write. Very true said, man's life is full of dreams and longings. I loved the lines......
    Lest sun grows dim
    Moon trims her dreams
    And stars'fall
    Imminent it may seem...
    Thanks for sharing with us.

    Human life is full of longings..... some made cospicuous, some hidden, some realized, some shattered! However these longings prompt us to live on! Beautifully presented Deepak! (Report)Reply
