Likewise A Good Samaritan - Poem by Palas Kumar Ray

If you've been loving someone befallen into deep blues
You may like to listen my words giving you some clues
about how to get rid of those sticking strains and pains
how to restore clear sky from black clouds and rains.

If you've been loving someone broken your heart into pieces.
Fear not it will fix surely and the pain will surely recess.
You may find me of some use if you allow me to come close.
I may help you in learning lessons of Life's dramatic prose.

Don't waste time asking how they'll help you to become high.
You need only to become a learner and you need only to try.
'All I have lost in my life' is what just you have to me said.
Hence you have nothing to lose in hearing what I plead.

Fear not, my fee you need not pay an amount very high.
I'll surely not take a penny from you and I don't surely lie.
If you feel my medicine works, help you laugh at woes
I'll feel you have paid your bills and I have paid my dues.

    a heart that aches, longs for some one to take the pain away
    but shies from reaching out, can't cope with more coming her way.

    what a blessing it is to have someone say I am there, that's enough to lessen the pain, mere acknowledgement means you are understood. very positive poem, at some stage in life we all need a reassuring good Samaritan.

    Doing good deeds like giving good advice or being a true friend is more valueble then gold.A good samaritan helps other people without asking in return.The karmic reward is fantastic in its returns.A ten for your efforts and the important lesson from your poem. (Report) Reply
