Better Life - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

I see you in sleep
Pure beauty
No expressions
No disturbing features
Of voice or gestures
Sleep's serenity
Sleep's simplicity
All worldly feelings
Totally arrested
Only a dream
May take you somewhere...

My dear, I love you
Day to day struggles
Leading to minor irritations
May have created some
Unpleasant situations
And my reactions
Might have troubled you
At times unintentionally
Forgive me please
And I'll strive
To build a better life
Now and always.

    I love the simplicity of this poem in it's sincerity.
    We all have our weaknesses, it is when we
    admit them then we will strive to do better.
    A very thoughtful write. (Report) Reply
