Poetry for me is a song, a sigh or a cry, -
Often rolled all in one, floating up high, -
Towards heaven, lighter than a feather,
With elevated emotions and thoughts, -
Both embracing each other!
The gamut of emotions which people display,
I read and inhale them, to live another day!

A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
