Still Alive - Poem by Soma Mukherjee

A river
a beautiful mirror
once a free spirited clear sparkle
now a stagnant green and blue
gullible and naive she was
smiling warmth back at every leer
and sheltering all
the odds and evens
abused and left
look at her lust for life
for she still hopes for some
footsteps of love and care
to kiss life in her
and resurrect her dreams
the torn body still with
a soul alive
oh how hard she tried
to keep her wounds hidden
from the smirking eyes
but sometimes even the pride refuses
to hide the pain any more
and the breeze
she never makes any promises
she can't be customised
spreads tranquility and stench with equal
some old 'loyal' followers
still talk about her
often reminiscing the beauty she was
but then there are the things as should and could
often overpowering the done
hope the sun shines before
she closes her eyes

    Las palabras de amor
    Mi corazon bellissima
    canción de cuna bonita
    dónde busco a mi corazón
    Las edades escriben para decirle las razones
    o cuentan de mi dolor.
    Yo qui siera
    para tenderla un amor y sabor
    llorando porti
    es con amor

    lindos recuerdos! impresionante! que nunca si olvidaran
    en los ojos de señorita Soma....
