Few Wishes!


Very few wishes I was expecting
May be of few words that I longed to hear today.

May be the flowers bloomed were less today
May be the sunrays didn’t hug me today.
May be the warmth breeze forgot to kiss me today.

May be the sweetest breeze,
didn’t carry the words of fragrance nor do any warmth of love.

After all the wishes are just made of few words.

But if the love and fragrance
doesn’t exists in those wishes
the wishes doesn't carry any sense.

When path is blocked with memories
those memories I have to unblock it
As they stood in my path
obstructing the clear view
to move forward.

Coolly and slowly
Every wishes will be faded
One day to become a few memories.
I am slowly setting my mind to freeze.
Moving a head!

Forget the wishes
Forget the memories
Those were just blocking me.
They were just the blockages in my heart.
Today is just reminding me, to think of only tomorrow!

    if wishes had wings

    while opening its wraps............. (Report) Reply

    A thing to become a memory has to be a wish first............Geetha.......unless wishes are entertained we can not
    move forward.............they are like hopes fuelling lives towards goal......very well composed....loved it (Report) Reply

    Todays wishes whether fulfilled or not will become yesterday's memories! But without beautiful wishes, life will become morose and dull! So keep sweet wishes for tomorrow and wait for them to be materialised! If not realized, accept it! Sweet write, Geetha! (Report) Reply

    Every wishes will be faded
    One day to become a few memories.

    Nicely said since our present fades into the background and they become twinkling memories. And as you rightly say, true wishes should be backed by true intends. (Report) Reply
