What I gained and What I lost!


When One pearl came to my hand
I was happy to have it.
I was making a chain of pearls
Where each pearl is my one friend
Everyday I kept on adding pearls one by one.
And finally after many days
I thought I will just see, is my chain completed
Surprised I was
To see the pearls remained the same
How come?
Then I saw I forgot to lock the other end.
When each time I added
Each time one pearl, I was loosing from other end.
If I had managed to keep it locked
Today my chain would have been completed.
What I lost is, I am trying to regain it.
And want to add,
Whom I lost.
How can I loose one pearl....
As every pearl is unique for me in its unique way..
I like each pearls...
And I don't want to loose any.

Friends are my pearls...
Each of you are my pearls.

    Wonderful write with deep meaning-beauty appreciation of friends to beautify our life..
    I am Unwritten Soul with diverse images and colors, my friends, each of them holding their soul
    and i swallow all of the souls to be mine, and they diverse my images to be more than before
    as if we eat, food be our flesh...so same thing to my friends' souls and my Unwritten soul
    We just a big cloud now...that share same sunshine and pour the teardrops together in one company_Soul (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
