1: If Only
If only I’d known, she’d tell another,
Privacy we shared, conversation and all,
I’d have been discreet.
If only I’d thought before I’d spoken,
My tongue I’d held a secret so dare
If only I’d thought of damages which followed,
No one would have heard a spoken word
If only, If only!
Feeling depressed, then read the book,
Foolish it may sound, but refreshing it is
It eases the mind to know there are others with problems like yours
Such a relief, play the music
Let memories flow, it relieves depression
3: Rare Quality
The hyacinth on the window sill, white and pure carried a precious look,
A rare species of flower, different from others,
So was the nurse whose quality that rare flower gave,
Relaxed, she would explain your problems,
What to expect, before and after,
Her quality was rare and precious too.
4: Only One World
Who said a third world? I only heard of one,
At the time of creation one foundation was made,
Yet man’s created his own
Oh! Why is that? Our creator said
He was not of this world
But permission wasn’t given to create another,
So what he has done by creating a “third world”
When the day of judgement come?
5: What Is Life
Life’s a journey through time, has its ups and downs,
Its preparations were made from the conceiving time,
May it be our destiny of what lies ahead,
Nothing is new it had to come,
Be it a victory, be it a tragedy,
It was our map for our travel through time,
The beginning and the end.
6: A Lonely Bird
I saw a loner in black from my window sill,
Perched on a branch looking left and right,
But nothing could I do the branch so high,
I could not reach listening to his noises,
So slight but calling for help,
He was lost, left behind,
In the dust of night,
A lonely feathered friend.
