Lovely People - Poem by Nithya Balachandran

Once in a while in life,
I meet some lovely people
They are as innocent as
children, and sweet
They are ignorant
of the ways of this world!
They have no hatred
in their minds
They don't cheat anyone
With all the goodness of this world
wrapped in them,
they give you the most genuine
smile from their hearts.
They have no prejudices
They may not be rich,
but they have a rich heart
They may not have a head
full of knowledge
But are filled with nector
of love.
You can see it in their eyes
I sometimes, feel like telling them
Please never lose this
innocence, my lovely ones
But at a second thought,
I doubt, how are they
going to face this world
cruel, crooked and devious?
A strange fear then engulfs me
Yes, they too will change
like the rest of the people.
They may become bitter and insensitive
Sometimes they may not, but
then God will take care of them.
As these lovely ones are pure and genuine
Their place will be in His heart, always!
