Poetic Pearls - Poem by Khairul Ahsan
Mother knows the pains of child bearing,
The forest knows the pains of weathering,
The pianist knows the pains of producing
The sweetest notes from the saddest feelings.
The gardener knows the pains of fallen leaves,
The lagoon that loses its water in the sand
Knows the pains of deserting love.
Sorrow sings in the melancholy of a grieving dove.
The deeper the pain, the sweeter the song.
The saddest poet writes the best lyrics.
Sometimes, the tears of pain
Makes the best poetic pearls.
