Treasure Island

Savita Tyagi


A song Of My Existence


Today I sing just for my self
This music as natural as the breath I take
Doesn’t belong to pages of poetry
I sing not in memory of past
Or to behold the glorious future
I sing just to make this moment the happiest one
Today I find refuge in my words
To seek joy and to cast away the grief
This broken, rhythm less paean rising from the depth of my heart
Reveals a joyous existence
Like a curtain moving in soft breeze
Exposes the unknown and mysterious.
I sing to feel the taste of life
Like a little child sucking on his thumb
To feel his sweet existence.

    I sing to feel the taste of life
    Like a little child sucking on his thumb
    To feel his sweet existence.
    Feeling one's own existence has many methods, and singing or writing poetry is a beautiful way of it. A truly beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    A lovely poem Savita, great in diction and intense in feeling! Occasionally we have to sing, not to cheer anybody else, but ourselves! ! (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem Savita, we should celebrate the joy of the moment rather than dwell on the past or think too much of the future. (Report) Reply

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
