Smile!


We do not text to each other these days
but yesterday my old friend texted
'Smile is address of life.
smile is a way to get success
smile is to win the hearts
smile improves your personality
so, smile always.'

This time I smiled for a reason
different altogether.
I told to myself
This text might have come
to a wrong address, by mistake.

Or she is forgetting now
how hard once I smiled
but address of life
was not found
neither success nor the heart.

Little bit of personality improved
only when I could learn
how to hide smiles.

I also told to myself
Unintended messages
need not be replied.

I will talk to her instead.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
