Tears Of Joy - Poem by Saheb Mohapatra

Times when our hearts are drenched with glow
And when they lift their feet to dance,
Some tears then arrive and show
The seas of success on our face.

Times when from the fields of our mind,
Are threshed our ripe wishes,
Some tears are such which then bind
And adorn them with true kisses.

Times when our dolor gets new wings
And flies in soul’s open sky,
The song of peace some tears then sing
And soothe the wailing eye.

I know these tears, the tears of joy,
Will one day clasp our calls,
Nor as we think it would annoy
But paint our barren souls.

    I am so glad to read your writings in a positive note. Each caring person will face pain, some suffering that we may never have wished to imagine. Yet without the face shaped by living where would the tears collect? You not only proclaim the positive but you ask questions that have wisdom in the answers. Your sharing is a wonderful gift...10 (Report)Reply
