The Comet Over The Palace - Poem by DR.BHAGYA CHANDRA RAJKUMAR

On my seventh birthday,
We saw the comet stretching over the sky.
My mother asked me to wish.
I wished for candy.
She smiled!

When I was at high school,
We saw the comet painted on the sky.
My teacher asked me to wish.
I wished to pass the examination.
He smiled!

As a teenager
We saw the comet passing through our eyes.
My loved one asked me to wish.
I wished for our union.
She smiled!

When I became a father
We saw the comet tail streaking across the sky.
My wife asked me to wish.
I wished for the prosperity of family.
She smiled!

I was old and grey when
We saw the comet over the palace at dawn.
People asked me to wish.
I wished for the peace of my birthplace.
Nobody smiled!

At the hour of my death
We saw the comet as harbinger of doom.
My Guru asked me to wish.
I wished to be born again at this place of birth.
Nobody heard!
